Remember the nervous but animated German safecracker from Zack Snyder’s Army Of The Dead? Dieter is coming back to your screens, this time with fewer zombies and more safes to crack!
Before his stint as a master locksmith in the zombie heist film, Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer) was simply a bank teller in a small town living an ordinary life. In the upcoming prequel Army Of Thieves, Dieter’s life is about to turn upside down when he is recruited by a mysterious woman to pull off a heist alongside her crew of thieving misfits.
The synopsis reads:
In this prequel to Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, small-town bank teller Dieter 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 legendary, impossible-to-crack safes across Europe.
Directed by Matthias Schweighöfer himself, the movie will also star:
- Nathalie Emmanuel
