Zack Snyder to Direct Sci-Fi Action Movie REBEL MOON for Netflix.


Zack Snyder is set to direct a new film for Netflix titled Rebel Moon. Snyder co-wrote the story with Kurt Johnstad, and they will co-write the script with Shay Hatten.

The story is set “on a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy that finds itself threatened by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius, they dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them take a stand.”

This project stems from an unproduced Star Wars film that Snyder developed for Lucasfilm. He used that project and reworked it into an original story. He previously said:

“I’ve been working on it, just away from the Star Wars universe, just on my own as a sci-fi thing. It’s still a sci-fi thing, it’s the same story, it’s just kind of – let Star Wars be Star Wars. And the 11-year-old me still wants to make that. Now I just know how to, so maybe we’ll see that someday.”

Rebel Moon will be produced by Deborah Snyder, Wesley Coller, and Zack Snyder. Production is expected to start sometime in 2022.
