‘Rebel Moon’: Zack Snyder’s Reworked ‘Star Wars’ Movie Heads to Netflix, Could Launch New Sci-Fi Universe
Posted on Tuesday, July 6th, 2021 by Joshua Meyer
It’s been quite a year for Zack Snyder, who has taken streaming services and the hashtag-loving hordes of the Internet by storm. First with his four-hour director’s cut of Justice League on HBO Max, then with his Las Vegas zombie heist Army of the Dead on Netflix. And he’s keeping busy. At one point, Snyder was developing a Star Wars film inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, but news came this May that he had reworked his idea into one that could take place outside the galaxy far, far away.
Now, it’s official: Snyder has set his next project at Netflix as Rebel Moon, a title that winks at the project’s Star Wars origins, but that will tell an original story with the hopes of launching a new “epic sci-fi fantasy” franchise.
