Now that this one is finally getting made, i'm curious to know, were there any more drafts that were leaked other than the first one from 2007? I know that there is a digital one dated 2008.3.4 which never made it to public as far i know, and i'm sure there had to be more. It wouldn't surprise me, since i can't see lot of studios agreeing to give a large budget like this one would need if some parts in third act were not changed, but then again, anything is possible.

Who knows, it's been 11 years since that first draft was written, so maybe the entire script and story were changed or the final film might end up being completely different. although i doubt that.

Correct.
UPDATE: After digging a bit more into this project, a source close to the production has said that the “Army of the Dead” script that is going into production with Netflix is not the same one that was being developed in 2008 and is “completely redone.” And this new script will most definitely not include any of the unsavory zombie/female interactions as detailed by the previously attached director.

I could’ve sworn I had this script, but I can’t find it on my drive. Can someone shoot me a copy? If memory serves, it was not that great to begin with.

You're right, it's not. It starts pretty decently, and there are some good moments of zombie action and gore, but the third act and some surprising twists involving characters and plot really made me not care for it in the end. Maybe it's different than similar films, but that doesn't mean that it works. I hope that the final film will be lot more like Dead Rising 2 (which had similar "heist during zombie outbreak" plot), and lot less like this first draft. And i don't know what the **** was Snyder (or Joby Harold) thinking with entire "rapist zombies" part. Like someone else said, if he already wanted to make something like that he should have just wrote a Humanoids From The Deep remake then, instead of this.
