Huma Flies to LA to Shoot for Zombie Thriller ‘Army of the Dead’

After her mind blowing performance in Leila, actor Huma Qureshi is all set to start working internationally. She has left for Los Angeles so she can start working on American filmmaker Zack Snyder's Netflix original film, Army Of The Dead.

Speaking about the opportunity she said, "It's a great opportunity for me to explore such varied genres. The idea of working with Zack is amazing considering his films in past, especially for audiences in India.”

Huma will be in Los Angeles until September.

Army Of The Dead follows a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas even as a man assembles a group of mercenaries to pull off the greatest heist ever. The film will also mark Snyder's return to the zombie genre, having previously made his directorial debut with Dawn Of The Dead. The film also stars Ella Purnell, Ana de la Reguera and Theo Rossi.

Speaking about how she bagged the role, Huma said, “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 also spoke about how this particular genre is unexplored for the Indian audiences.
