Fans of Zack Snyder were over the moon about getting a release date for the passionately anticipated space adventure film, “Rebel Moon.”
The scooper MyTimeToShineHello on Twitter was the first to give a hint about the December release date.
Speaking to Variety, Ori Marmur, Vice President of Original Studio Film at Netflix, talked about the confidence that Netflix has in Zack Snyder, and hinted on expanding the Rebel Moon universe.
“Zack came in with so much passion. This is a film that he’s had in mind for decades. As you know, he’s spent so much time working on other people’s IP at other studios,” said Marmur. “We worked with him on “Army of the Dead” and we did things that others couldn’t do. We made a film and then a prequel and launched a live experience. With “Rebel Moon” he wanted to push the envelope again. When we saw how big the world he created was, we thought it would be better served as two pieces versus one film. It’s the kind of story that can continue to grow. He thinks of it as his take on making something like “Star Wars.”
The confidence that Netflix has in “Rebel Moon” is apparent from Netflix already putting up a billboard to promote the film.
Zack Snyder’s collaborators, Clay Staub, Tom Holkenborg, Ray Fisher, and others, shared their excitement to be involved in the project.
