Chloe Moretz Rots For Title Role In Undead ‘Maggie’

After playing a vampire and a werewolf, Dark Shadows and Let Me In star Chloe Moretz (pictured) is in negotiations to complete the terrifying trifecta and play a zombie alongside Paddy Considine (The Bourne Ultimatum) in Maggie, which Inferno Entertainment will finance and handle international sales for at Cannes, reports Variey.

Commercial helmer Henry Hobson will make his feature directorial debut working with a Black List script from John Scott 3.

Set against the backdrop of a zombie apocalypse, story concerns a father’s unconditional love for his daughter.” Considine is in talks to play the father, while Moretz would play his titular daughter, Maggie, a 16-year old girl from a town in middle America who becomes infected by a zombie.

As previously reported, Maggie changes the lightning quick infection period evident in most zombie films, where victims become zombies in minutes. It will take six months for Maggie to turn, and the film tracks the transformation as she stays with her family.

Pierre-Ange Le Pogam is producing the $10 million pic, which is scheduled to start production in September.

Moretz is also starring in the title role of MGM’s remake of Carrie.

    When did Chloe play a werewolf?

  • staindFAN

    Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. I think I have seen every film she’s been in, and don’t recall any Werewolf role.

    • EvanDickson

      Hmmm, you haven’t seen every film then ; )

  • djblack1313

    i was just going to ask the same thing! lol. i don’t think Chloe has ever played a werewolf.

  • EvanDickson

    She has guys. It’s just in a – ahem – newer movie. Twas the same thing in the TV show, didn’t think was a spoiler.

    I was going to say the same thing…Werewolf? I dont recall her playing one…but I’m by no means a diehard Chloë Grace Moretz fan…So I am not nay saying.

  • lucie-with-a-gun

    she has played a werewolf.

  • anthonyd1

    She has indeed played a werewolf…Some movies have not been out long enough for everyone to say they have seen every movie with Chloe Moretz :)

  • Eville

    She’s been a werewolf. As for this film. Sounds interesting. I actually like the take of the virus taking so many months to fester and change you rather then you changing in minutes.

    It counts as a spoiler, some of us weren’t even alive for the tv show. There crack that code.
