Zack Snyder Says Six ‘Rebel Moon’ Films Is Possible

Zack Snyder doesn’t do anything small. And that goes double for his original sci-fi space drama, Rebel Moon, which he has ambitious plans for. Although the first film was savaged by critics, it was a streaming hit for Netflix, and led to an expansion of the franchise with prequel comics, video games, novels, and of course, upcoming R-rated Director’s Cuts. The second chapter, titled The Scargiver, arrives today, but Snyder is already looking forward to what’s next.

Speaking with RadioTimes, Snyder gave an idea of how many Rebel Moon movies he has in mind…

“I guess four makes sense. Four or six movies, depending…I guess it’s whether or not every time we make one of these movies, we make two, that’s the question.”

Snyder continued, “We were talking about it the other day and I was like, would an audience be disappointed if they only got one movie now from Rebel Moon? Would they be like, ‘Oh, it’s one now? Great.’

What Snyder means is that he’s not planning to make six separate movies, but three movies each with an extended R-rated Director’s Cut. That would mean he’s got one more film to make, assuming Netflix gives it a thumbs up…

“We absolutely have the story all set; we did all that work,” Snyder explained. “We wrote a treatment for the movie, so we’ll see how we go ahead.”

And of course, it really depends on how well The Scargiver does when it opens today on Netflix. If the streaming numbers remain strong, you can bet Snyder will have everything he needs to complete the story.
