It’s been a minute since we had any word on Henry Hobson’s zombie drama Maggie. Last we heard, it was acquired by Lionsgate, who promptly pulled it from the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival where it was set to have its world premiere. Since then, the whole world has waited with bated breath to find out when we can finally see Schwarzenegger punch zombies in the face. Now we have that answer.
Lionsgate’s partner Roadside Attractions will be releasing Maggie on May 8, only a couple months from now! This will be Hobson’s directorial debut, after working as a title credits designer for years.
“A Midwestern farmer stays by the side of his beloved teenage daughter even as she slowly turns into a cannibalistic zombie, in this daring, genre-bending debut feature.”
The film also stars also stars Abigail Breslin, Joely Richardson, Laura Cayouette and J.D. Evermore.
