Abigail Breslin set to lead contagion thriller Peste

May. 15, 2013by: Kevin Woods

Young starlet Abigail Breslin, who can next be seen in the upcoming FINAL GIRL and the highly anticipated ENDER'S GAME, is set to take the lead in PESTE, a contagion thriller from IM Global’s genre label Octane scheduled to go into production in September, according to Variety.

Mark Tonderai (HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET) helms from a spec script by Barbara Marshall that IM Global picked up late last year after it hit the Black List. Reportedly the first part of a planned trilogy, PESTE is set in the wake of an outbreak of a virus that wipes out the majority of the human population.  The story focuses on...

a teen whose family is quarantined after a virus sweeps their small town. The teen documents her family’s new life in quarantine and tries to protect her infected sister.

I think outbreak/contagion films can be quite unsettling when handled correctly so I'm holding on to the hope that PESTE will deliver something worthwhile. Breslin is a fine little actress who has demonstrated that she can give exceptional performances so I'm hoping that Barbara Marshall's script gives her plenty of opportunities to shine.
