No one can argue that zombie are hot are hot right now. Arnold Schwarzenegger is the latest to get in on the zombie action by joining the upcoming zombie film Maggie. About a year ago, Chloe Moretz was in negotiations to star in the film, but due to scheduling conflicts the talks fell through.
The story is set in a time where a zombie virus has spread across the country. Schwarzenegger will play the father of a young girl who is infected with the virus and slowly turns into a zombie. He takes her on a journey to help her come to terms with her infection as she turns.
This sounds like a departure for what we’ve come to expect from Schwarzenegger lately, but the man does like a challenge.
The film will be directed by commercial director Henry Hobson, and is based on a Black Script written by John Scott 3. Production will commence in the fall
In addition to starring in, Schwarzenegger is also planning to serve as a producer.
