Zack Snyder, the director of Army of the Dead, has claimed that he intends to make a pornographic film at some time.
Following the release of the Justice League ‘Snyder Cut’ and the aforementioned Netflix film, the director, who is currently on top of the world, opened up a little about his obsession with the human body.
He told The Daily Telegraph about his admiration for Renaissance artists such as Caravaggio and Michelangelo, saying, “That kind of understanding of the human form is something I really warmed to.”
“I’ve always wanted to make both a religious and a pornographic film, but I’ve never had the opportunity to do either.” Perhaps if I combined the two… Or perhaps 300 is, in some ways, that film. Or at the very least, a teaser for what that picture might be.”
“People have gotten uneasy with something that honours the human species in such a heroic, viscerally physical way,” Snyder remarked, referring to his 2007 film 300 and its fascistic visual implications.
When 300 was first released, some critics claimed film was too physically indulgent – that it was, in some ways, pornographic. But I guess I’m very into that indulgence from a philosophical sense.”
Snyder recently stated that he wrote the treatment for a new 300 sequel that was supposed to be a gay love tale.
He told The Playlist, “It turned out to be a love tale, so it didn’t really fit in as the third movie.” “However, there was that concept, which turned out to be fantastic.”
“It’s called Blood and Ashes, and it’s really a lovely love storey with warfare in it.” I’d love to do it, but [WB] declined since they aren’t big fans of mine. “It is what it is,” says the narrator.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is now available on HBO Max in the United States, as well as Sky Cinema and NOW in the United Kingdom. Army of the Dead is now available to watch on Netflix.
