Immediately, it becomes clear that safe-cracker Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer) will be the protagonist, whereas in Army of the Dead he was merely a side character. The trailer shows him getting in contact with a mysterious society, represented by Gwendoline (played by Game of Thrones actress Nathalie Emmanuel), who want Dieter's unique skillset for a special heist. With all of America distracted by a zombie apocalypse, there will never be a better opportunity for theft.
Dieter won't be alone in this zesty endeavor. Joining him are a crew of oddball thieves, including characters played by Scottish actor Stuart Martin (Game of Thrones) and Guz Khan (who appeared alongside Emmanuel in Mindy Kaling's Four Weddings and a Funeral miniseries). The trailer doesn't reveal who their opponents will be, only that there will be a lot of guns, a lot of cars, and a massive fortune for the taking.
The film's synopsis is "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."
