05.16.2013by: Kevin Woods

Chris Pine, Amanda Seyfried, and Chiwetel Ejiofor are set to star in the post-apocalyptic thriller Z FOR ZACHARIAH, an adaptation of Robert C. O’Brien’s classic science fiction novel of the same name. The film will be directed by Craig Zobel (COMPLIANCE) from a script penned by Nissar Modi and is being produced by Tobey Maguire via his Material Pictures banner along with the company’s senior vp Matthew Plouffe.

Z for Zachariah is a psychological thriller, set after an apocalyptic event, that centers on a teenaged girl (Seyfried) who is seemingly the sole survivor until a scientist (Ejiofor) finds her farm, and the two fall in love. Another survivor, a young man (Pine), surfaces, complicating matters.

The film is set to begin shooting in August.

This isn't the first time Z FOR ZACHARIAH has been brought to life onscreen. In February 1984, the BBC presented a film adaptation for its "Play for Today" series, in which the setting was changed from America to Wales.
