故事发生在一场丧尸传染病大爆发后，赌城拉斯维加斯沦为被封锁的废墟，与外界隔绝。史考特沃德（戴夫巴蒂斯塔饰）过去在丧尸大战中战功彪炳，如今在城外郊区找到容身处，在汉堡店工作，勉强餬口。赌场老板田中布莱（真田广之饰）找上他，提出一个分秒必争的邀请：32 小时后，政府即将用核弹轰炸整座城市，他必须赶在那之前闯进丧尸横行的隔离区，取回放在赌城大道地下金库里的 200 万美金。一无所有的沃德决心一试，四处找来对劫案有帮助的各路专家拼凑成团队。时间一分一秒流逝，他们要闯入世上最难抢的金库，周遭还有一群更聪明、速度更快的进化版丧尸步步进逼。这场史上最大规模的劫案，将是幸存者全拿的生死豪赌。

- Dawn of the Dead writer James Gunn didn't return to write the script due to scheduling conflicts with The Suicide Squad (2021).
- Netflix took over the project from Warner Bros. and will start filming in the summer of 2019 with a budget of up to $90 million.
- This will be Zack Snyder's first film after taking a break to focus on his family after his daughter's death, and to collaborate with suicide prevention and awareness causes. Snyder told THR, "There are no handcuffs on me at all with this one...I thought this was a good palate cleanser to really dig in with both hands and make something fun and epic and crazy and bonkers in the best possible way...I love to honor canon and the works of art, but this is the opportunity to find a purely joyful way to express myself though a genre. It will be the most kick-ass, self-aware -- but not in a wink-to-the-camera way -- balls-to-the-wall zombie freakshow that anyone has ever seen. No one's ever let me completely loose [like this]."
