ACTION: ‘ARMY OF THE DEAD’ TRAILER BRINGS FORMER AC CASINOS BACK TO LIFE from PlayNJ's David Danzis

An army of the dead is bringing Atlantic City back to life on the big screen.

Well … sort of. OK, not really.

But parts of AC were used as filming sets for Zack Synder’s straight-to-Netflix movie Army of the Dead. A trailer for the $90-million movie surfaced last week.

However, fans will have to wait until May 21 to see the entire Army of the Dead film.

The casino heist film is set in Las Vegas during a zombie outbreak. Mock gambling floors were staged at the Showboat Hotel Atlantic City and the former Atlantic Club Casino Hotel.

The movie stars Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Ana de la Reguera, Theo Rossi, Huma Qureshi, Omari Hardwick, and Tig Notaro.

Synder has directed multiple Hollywood blockbusters, including 300, Watchmen, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He made his directorial debut in 2004 with a remake of the 1970’s horror classic Dawn of the Dead.

DETAILS AWAITED ON THE BALLY’S-CONNECTED MINI-CASINO COMING TO CENTRE COUNTY BY PENNBETS' GARY ROTSTEIN

PennBets

Things have been quiet the past two months regarding Centre County’s pending mini-casino, and Tuesday seemed no different even though it represented an important notch on the project’s timeline.

It has been six months since Philadelphia real estate and business investor Ira Lubert secured the rights to develop Pennsylvania’s fifth mini-casino by virtue of a winning $10 million bid at a Sept. 2 Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board auction.

The board’s procedures provided Lubert six months — or until Tuesday — to submit to the agency a detailed application describing the project’s specific location, site development plan, financing, economic impact, transportation considerations, and more.

The only real news about the project to come out subsequent to the September auction has been a Jan. 4 announcement by Bally’s Corp., a national casino company without any prior Pennsylvania connection, that it had reached a partnership agreement with Lubert “to jointly design, develop, construct, and manage” the project.

Will The Stars Align For North Dakota Online Poker? from Online Poker Report's Alex Weldon

Online Poker Report

Everyone loves a good underdog story, and one is shaping up this year in North Dakota.

On Tuesday, the state’s House of Representatives approved a pair of resolutions and companion bills related to gambling expansion. One set potentially paves the way for the state to introduce sports betting (Res. 3032/HB 1234), and the other covers online poker (Res. 3012/HB 1389).

The state is not currently considering online casinos. If both these efforts succeeded, then, North Dakota would join Nevada as the only other state with legal online poker but no online casinos.

On both fronts, state lawmakers elected to leave the final decision to the electorate. If the Senate agrees to the proposals, they would become ballot measures in the 2022 election. The companion bills lay out the terms under which the new gambling products could be offered.

New York Congressman Seeks Jimmy Hoffa FBI File from Casino.org

A New York congressman has asked the federal government to release the full FBI case file on former labor leader Jimmy Hoffa. Decades ago, the Detroit-based labor boss helped secure millions in Teamsters Union loans for Las Vegas casino construction.

US Rep. Lee Zeldin (R) has filed a congressional request with the Department of Justice seeking tens of thousands of pages of documents regarding the former Teamsters president, according to Eric Shawn, a Fox News anchor and reporter.

Shawn said it could be months before the federal government decides whether to release the files.

Hoffa went missing in July 30, 1975, from the parking lot of the Machus Red Fox restaurant in suburban Detroit. He was scheduled to meet that afternoon with Mafia leaders to resolve differences. A judge declared him dead seven years after he went missing.

No one has been criminally charged in the 62-year-old Hoffa’s death. His body has never been recovered.
