Abigail Breslin has landed the title role in the upcoming Maggie, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. She joins Arnold Schwarzenegger in the zombie tale. Written by John Scott 3, Maggie has been given the following official logline:
As a walking dead virus spreads across the country, a farm family helps their eldest daughter come to terms with her infection as she slowly becomes a flesh-eating zombie.
Chloe Grace Moretz was up for the title role earlier this year, but departed the project due to scheduling conflicts. Breslin, who previously battled the undead in Zombieland, recently starred in The Call opposite Halle Berry and can be seen coming up in Ender’s Game.
Commercials director Henry Hobson will helm Maggie and the modestly-budgeted film will mark his theatrical debut.
