Rebel Moon: Zack Snyder Netflix Movie Wraps Up Filming

Zack Snyder Has Officially Wrapped Principal Photography On His Next Genre Blockbuster: Netflix rogue moon.

Posting to his Vero account last week, the filmmaker thanked the cast and crew of the upcoming sci-fi epic. “I am humbled by your artistry, dedication, incredible hard work and friendship,” he wrote. “Without you, there would simply be no movie. So again, thank you!”

Co-written by the director, Shay Hatten (army of the dead), and Kurt Johnstad (300), the film centers on a peaceful colony at the edge of the galaxy that is forced to take up arms against the tyrannical Regent Balisarius. Imagine seven samuraibut in space!

“[I]It’s a space fantasy, so there’s no such thing as Earth, necessarily,” Snyder joked last month. “There is a community on a planet, an agricultural planet, and there are a lot of bad guys. The armies of the mother world are in the area and need to be fed. So they come to the village and ask that the village basically feed them while they wage their war in that area of ​​the galaxy. And of course they are not nice to ask, and the result will probably be the destruction of the village. The villagers decide to fight, so they have to go out into the galaxy and gather some soldiers, warriors to help them.”
