Zack Snyder will receive the first Valiant Award at the Hollywood Critics Association’s fourth annual Film Awards on Friday. Snyder, who directed Iron Man, Batman v supermanand the next Zack Snyder’s Justice League, is being honored by the way he and his wife Deborah responded to their daughter’s death by suicide in March 2017. At that time, Zack Snyder resigned from his leadership roles at League of Justice And since then the couple have worked to raise money to help prevent others from experiencing the same pain.
“As a Synder fan ever since Dawn of the Dead“He couldn’t be happier that we recognize his vision for filmmaking and his resilience to overcome any obstacle,” HCA President Scott Menzel said in a statement Wednesday.
In a statement of her own, HCA President Ashley Menzel added: “As someone whose life was affected by suicide, I was deeply moved by how Zack and his wife and business partner Deborah turned their immeasurable pain into altruistic action, spearheading an effort that has helped countless individuals and families. “
In December, Snyder and his fans helped raise more than $ 500,000 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Additional efforts will be made to raise money for the charity during the HCA Film Awards. The HCA plans to purchase Snyder’s merchandise on the Ink to the People fundraising platform to give away on social media during the ceremony.
Snyder’s next big movie will be released later this month. An extended four-hour cut from the 2017 movie, Zack Snyder’s Justice League It will premiere on HBO Max on March 18. Because Joss Whedon greatly changed the original League of Justice With new recordings and rewrites, fans had been campaigning for years for Warner Bros. to let Snyder complete the original vision he had for the film. While some new footage has been shot, the four-hour cut will mostly feature scenes that Snyder had filmed years ago.
Speaking about the movie recently, Snyder also revealed that the original plan for League of Justice was to launch a new trilogy of DC movies. He doesn’t think Warner Bros. will ever order the two sequels undone, likely due to the high costs involved in such efforts, but releasing the Snyder Cut is still a huge win for fans. Snyder reportedly cost the studio about $ 70 million to complete the four-hour cut.
After making his directorial debut with the Dawn of the Dead remake in 2004, Snyder also returns to zombie horror this summer. His new movie Army of the dead will launch on Netflix in May. With a cast led by Dave Bautista, the feature film follows a group of mercenaries who plan a Ocean’s Eleven-Style robbery in a casino vault during a zombie outbreak. Snyder will also produce a German prequel along with an anime series adaptation alongside Deborah.
The fourth edition of the Hollywood Critics Association Film Awards will air on March 5 on the official YouTube channel, as well as on the organization’s official Facebook page. This news comes to us from The Hollywood Reporter.
