The Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie flick Maggie may have found its titular character at last. The one-time Little Miss Sunshine is all grown up and ready to… rot.
THR is reporting that Abigail Breslin (The Call) is in talks to play a young woman who realizes she will slowly join the ranks of the undead.
The film is based on the Black List script by John Scott 3 and is set during a time when a “walking dead” virus has spread across the country. Schwarzenegger, who recently closed a deal to appear in the fifth Terminator, will portray the father on a journey to help his daughter come to terms with her infection as she slowly becomes a zombie. Chloe Moretz had been in negotiations last year to play the zombie lead but now is not appearing due to scheduling issues.
The film will be directed by commercials director Henry Hobson with production set to commence in the fall. Schwarzenegger is producing alongside Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, Matt Baer, Trevor Kaufman, Colin Bates, and Joey Tufaro. The movie will be executive produced by Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel, Ara Keshishian, Hubert Gibbs, Claudia Bluemhuber, and Scott 3.
