THR writes that Abigail Breslin is joining Arnold Schwarzenegger in the world of the undead.
The actress, who has made a strong case as the newest “Scream Queen” (having starred in Zombieland, Peste, Haunter, Final Girl, Signs and even The Call) is in talks to star opposite Schwarzenegger in the zombie film Maggie, based on a Black List script from John Scott 3.
“The pic is about a father (Schwarzenegger) whose daughter, Maggie (Breslin), is infected by a walking-dead virus that has spread across the country.”
Commercial director Henry Hobson will helm Maggie, and production will start in the fall.
Schwarzenegger is producing the film alongside Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, Matt Baer, Trevor Kaufman, Colin Bates and Joey Tufaro.
