Zack Snyder’s stock has certainly risen since the release of ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League,’ with his vison shown in all it’s glory. The special cut that premiered this year was a major talking point even months after its release. ‘The Snyder Cut’ has already become a cult legend in cinema.
Fast forward to today and Snyder is back with his next film, ‘Army Of The Dead.’ And in casting Huma Qureshi in the movie, he has been left so thoroughly impressed that he says he wants to only cast Indian actors moving forward. Qureshi portrays the role of a woman called Geeta in the zombie horror drama, which will premiere on Netflix, reports Filmfare.
“She was written as an Indian character, and Huma is a really amazing actress, no two ways about it. We talked about who we could get, and the casting director brought her up. I watched some of her material, and I was like, ‘this actress is amazing’,” Snyder told the media. He went on to say that he didn’t think Qureshi would agree to do the film but he was happy when she agreed. “I was so happy, and finally, having her on set, she was like, you know, I want only Indian actors in my movies from now on,” he added.
‘Army Of The Dead’ releases on 21st May.
