OMARI Hardwick has been transformed into a muscle-bound zombie-fighting mercenary in the Netflix trailer for Army of the Dead.
And it’s a world away from the actor’s popular role as Ghost in Starz series Power.

A preview of Zack Snyder’s long-awaited action horror film has finally dropped, promising a mix of humour, gun-toting and chainsaw antics.
Omari, 47, stars as the broody Vanderohe, alongside Dave Bautista’s Scott Ward – the film’s rugged protagonist.
The movie is set to start streaming on May 21 and also stars Ella Purnell, Theo Rossi, Ana de la Reguera and Michael Cassidy.
The story follows a zombie outbreak occurring in Las Vegas as a group of mercenaries take on the ultimate risk by breaking into a restricted area to pull off one of the greatest heists ever attempted.

Former zombie war hero Scott (Bautista) is hired by a casino boss to break into a zombie-infested quarantine zone within 32 hours to get back $200million that is sitting below the casino strip.
Snyder, known for Justice League, Man of Steel, Watchman, and 300, both directed and co-wrote the film.
Hopefully seeing Omari in this latest offering will distract his fans from pleas for his Power character’s return – from the dead.

Nightclub owner and drug Lord Ghost was gunned down in the final season of Power.
It went on to spark a sensational whodunnit that broke the internet.
It was later revealed that it was actually his own son Tariq that shot him.
