Army of the Dead, starring Dave Bautista as a zombie-killing warrior, is now streaming on Netflix. The cast of the film is extensive, but one performer in particular has sparked people’s interest: Tig Notaro.
Zack Snyder had already begun filming the picture with Chris D’Elia, but chose to eliminate him when he was accused of allegedly sexually abusing minors.
So Snyder went back and replaced him with Notaro, so Bautista never had the opportunity to actually meet her. In a recent interview with Vulture, he said that this is his biggest regret about the film.
“It was weird, because, you know, I wasn’t there. And when I watch it, I feel like I was there. There’s a connection that’s missing there. But I don’t feel like the movie misses a beat. Anybody who doesn’t know that that’s the case won’t pick up on it at all. Tig fits right in, and her chemistry fits right in,” Bautista shared.
“What really bothers me, when I watch this film — it bothers me that I don’t know Tig. I feel like I should know her. I want to meet her, and I want to hug her and tell her how amazing she was in the film. I’ve been able to do that with all my other co-stars, and I haven’t been able to do it with Tig because I haven’t met her yet. I think she’s amazing and is incredible in the film,” he added.
So what do you think? Do you think the movie still worked even if the actors never got the chance to film together?
