Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken a leading role in the upcoming zombie project Maggie, Variety reports. He's also planning to serve as a producer on the 2011 "Black List" project. Written by John Scott 3, it was 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.
Although she was up for the title role earlier this year, Chloe Grace Moretz is no longer set to star due to scheduling conflicts.
Schwarzenegger, who recently starred in The Last Stand, also recently confirmed that he'll be returning to his most popular franchise with Terminator 5.
Commercials director Henry Hobson will helm Maggie and the modestly-budgeted film will mark his theatrical debut.
