Actor Huma Qureshi left for Los Angeles earlier this week to begin working on her upcoming zombie flick, “Army of the Dead”, a Netflix film by American filmmaker Zack Snyder. She had stated that it’s a great opportunity for her to explore such varied genres and she considered the idea of working with Zack as amazing because of his films in past, especially for Indian audiences, reported a foreign media outlet. Huma will be in America till September at least.
“This genre is vastly unexplored for the Indian audiences. Right now is the time for successful experimentation. Actors are trying to do something they have never done before, which is extremely gratifying. The team behind the film needs no introduction, and it’s truly an honour for me to be part of this special project,” said Huma . Further on, expressing her feelings pertaining to how things progressed for her, she stated that, “I was in Los Angeles (in May) and I was there for other work. When I was asked to go for this audition, I said why not? This was on a Friday and they told me, ‘This is a film which is amazing, sounds very cool. It has Zack Snyder and it is something different.”
Huma further added that three days after the interview she received a call regarding the film offer. “This happened on a Friday and I came back to India the next day. On Tuesday, they called me and offered me the film. That’s how it really happened. I’m excited about this film. I don’t want to reveal much as it’s too early to talk about (the film) and we haven’t started shooting yet. I just want to shoot, give (it) my best shot. I’m hope that it will be successful,” she said. Army Of The Dead follows a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas as a man assembles a group of mercenaries to pull off the greatest heist ever. It marks Snyder’s return to the zombie genre after he made his directorial debut with Dawn Of The Dead.
