Thieves Before The Zombie Outbreak
November 7, 2021
ARMY OF THIEVES Soundtrack by Hans Zimmer & Steve Mazzaro Due Out Nov 12
Milan Records releases the digital soundtrack album for the Netflix original film ARMY OF THIEVES on Nov. 12th, featuring the film’s original music jointly composed by Hans Zimmer and Steve Mazzaro (THE BOSS BABY, THE RHYTHM SECTION, THE SPONGEBOB MOVIE: SPONGE ON THE RUN). The ARMY OF THE DEAD prequel, produced by Zack Snyder, follows small-town bank teller Sebastian as he gets drawn into the adventure of a lifetime when a mysterious woman recruits him to join a crew of Interpol’s most wanted criminals, attempting to heist a sequence of uniquely crafted safes housed in banks across Europe.
The story of THIEVES is nicely interwoven with that of ARMY OF THE DEAD (and vice versa), although the zombie elements are kept mostly off screen in THIEVES – which is a heist comedy film taking place in Europe just as the zombie outbreak (which will form the storyline of ARMY OF THE DEAD) has begun in Nevada, USA; it is referenced briefly in news flashes shown on TVs shown in ARMY OF THIEVES, and on nightmares those news clips give to Sebastian. Matthias Schweighöfer stars as Sebastian (aka Ludwig Dieter, the name he’s known as in ARMY OF THE DEAD) and also directs the film. Co-stars include Nathalie Emmanuel (GAME OF THRONES, the last three FAST & THE FURIOUS movies), Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin, and Guz Khan. Together this “army” of thieves join together to break into three European banks that have the three safes created by legendary locksmith Hans Wagner, which currently belong to billionaire Bly Tanaka (whose is one of the characters in ARMY OF THE DEAD, in which the fourth safe, referenced but not shown in THIEVES, is the MacGuffin that ARMY OF THE DEAD’s storyline hinges on).
ARMY OF THIEVES premiered last month and is now streaming on Netflix.
