Rebel Moon is a forthcoming science fiction fantasy adventure film to be directed by Zack Snyder for Netflix, it has been announced. Synder will produce and direct the movie from a screenplay co-written with Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad, the pair behind the storyline.
A peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy is threatened by the armies of a tyrannical regent named Balisarius. Desperate people dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighbouring planets to help them make a stand.
“This is me growing up as an Akira Kurosawa fan, a Star Wars fan,” Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s my love of sci-fi and a giant adventure. My hope is that this also becomes a massive IP and a universe that can be built out.”
