Army of Thieves stars Stuart Martin and Guz Khan weigh-in out their characters fates for a possible spin-off from the Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead franchise.
Army of Thieves came out this past Friday, earning a 70% critic score, and a 77% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie, which is directly connected to Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, follows Matthias Schweighöfer’s character, bank teller Dieter, in somewhat of an origin story of this beloved awkward/charming persona that quickly became a fan favorite. The movie also stars Nathalie Emmanuel, Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin, Guz Khan, and Jonathan Cohen.
The Illuminerdi had the chance to chat with Stuart Martin who plays Brad Cage and Guz Khan, who plays the get-away driver, Rolph for an exclusive interview. Last week, we revealed which scene was Martin’s favorite to shoot. We also asked the actors about the future of their characters and what could possibly be in store for them.
What Would A Brad Cage and Rolph Spin-Off Look Like In The Army Universe
The Illuminerdi: We know that there’s going to be Army of the Dead Last Vegas, and I certainly hope that we haven’t seen the last of your two characters in this. If there are plans for your characters in the future, where would you like to see your characters go?
‘I would like a heavy upgrade on the transit van that I had to drive around, bro” said Khan jokingly. “Put me in a 911 Carerra GT3. Me and Stu… Stu, if me and you do a movie where we’re trying to kill zombies, and we’re rolling around in a Porsche 911 GT3… I think we’ve lived another dream, mate.” Completed the actor. “I love it, man. I’m there for that” replied Stuart as the actors went back and forth on their wishes. “Two-seater, bro. No room for anyone else, just me and you” said Guz.
Stuart Martin wants to go to Prison.
“I just want them to go to jail. I think that it could be a prison drama, do you know what I mean? It could just be all in jail” Explained martin.
Illuminerdi: You know what, and that would be cool because I want to see the evolution of where Brad’s character goes and what happens to him in jail. Does he get humbled? Does he go back to his other name? There’s a lot there, there’s a lot there. This almost writes itself.” Martin seemed open to the idea. “That’s an interesting thing that happens, in the car scene. There’s an interesting dynamic that happens between Brad and Rolph. There’s a switch, and it will be interesting to see where that goes. He’s seen Brad for who he is, he sees the weakness and the vulnerability. So, where does that go?” completed the actor.
I must admit that I still have to watch Army of Thieves, but it is penciled in for this weekend. I’m not sure what happens to all of the characters but the thought of having them all survive at the end to have stories branch out to expand the “Army of” universe seems really cool. I may be completely and terribly wrong, but a guy can dream.
Zack Snyder’s Army Universe
Speaking of dreams, Zack Snyder’s dreams of expanding his universe. The sequel to Army of Dead will be called Planet of the Dead and it’ll tell the story of what happened once Vanderhoe carried the infection all the way to one of the biggest and most populated capitals of the world. As the title suggests, the world has turned and its new habitant’s reign supreme. I wonder if Zack Snyder will incorporate the spaceships from the beginning of Army of the Dead and if that will play out in any future plots.
Army of Thieves is available to stream on Netflix now!
