The Dawn Of The Dead sequel shows signs of life. The Observer has the details on the full character list for Zack Snyder’s Army Of The Dead, revealing who exactly Bautista will play in the Netflix zombie film.
Among the long list of character descriptions the report contains is the role Bautista will play Vanderohe: a complete badass with a complex past that prepares him to face the human-eating monsters. Also, find out who will make up the rest of the main team of zombie fighters we’ll be rooting for.
Here they are:
Vanderohe (30s-40s): Strong as a beast, with muscles bulging out of his tight T-shirt, this guy is a “badass,” but also good-humored. Known for his expertise when it comes to killing zombies. He has a philosophical approach to life to counteract his emotional scars from what he witnessed in the war. (Lead).
Frank Peters (50s-60s): He is a “cool-as-hell older dude with slicked-back gray hair and aviators.” A chopper pilot, brought on board to transport the team into the zombie-held territory. (Lead).
Lilly (Late 20s-30s): Restless, a tough cookie, also known as the Coyote, helping those, who, for whatever reason, need to get back inside the zombie stronghold. She’s canny and crafty, with all the skills to survive in the most hostile of environments. (Lead).
Cruz (Female, late 30s-40s): Latina, a mechanic, owner of a body shop. Hard-drinking and tough-talking, she’s more than happy to join the mission into the zombie stronghold, but it’s not for the money. (Lead).
Ludwig Dieter (Male, 20s): A scrawny Swiss-German kid and master safe-cracker. He has broken into more high security vaults than anybody else in the world. Dieter is the only one who is vocally excited about the mission and considers the upcoming adventure real “fun.” (Lead).
Reggie (20s): “Tough as can be—jacked, stacked and cool.” He, too, is a member of the team whose primary role is straight-up zombie killer. (Supporting).
Adeline (30s): Disenfranchised immigrant, a refugee, she’s a single mom with two young children, willing to do anything to keep her kids safe. (Lead).
Burt Cummings (30s): Thin, with a “porny mustache,” greasy-haired, this guy is a tobacco-chewing, self-important jerk, cocky and alienating, who is taking advantage of the power he has obtained over the refugees. (Lead).
Mikey Guzman (30s): Fearless, highly capable, he is a sharp-shooter, able to kill multiple zombies with a single shot. He is looking for the one big score that will change his life. (Supporting).
Scott (40s-50s): Dry witted, thoughtful. Estranged from his family. (Lead)
Kate (Early 20s): Taciturn, hard-working, driven. She is Scott’s daughter, but estranged from her father. She is a volunteer with the World Health Organization. (Lead).
Martin (30s): A Ray-Ban wearing fellow in a suit, he is right-hand-man to billionaire Hunter Bly. Former head of security at Blye’s Las Vegas casino. No one is quite sure of his motivations. (Lead).
Even though Guardians of the Galaxy’s Dave Bautista is the only actor who’s been cast as of right now, you can expect further news soon as they begin the casting process. Zack Snyder is set to direct the Netflix film from a script by Joby Harold. The mysterious sequel has been in development for years, but it has finally gained traction when Snyder decided to return to the franchise after making his feature-film debut with Dawn.
