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.
