It's been several months since we last heard word on the Arnold Schwarzenegger-starring MAGGIE, a zombie drama directed by Henry Hobson which also stars Abigail Breslin, Joely Richardson, Laura Cayouette and J.D. Evermore. Our last report came back in August of last year when Lionsgate picked up the film for North American distribution. This was also around the time that the film was set to make its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, but that premiere was pulled as news of the acquisition hit. That left many of us wondering when we'd finally get to check MAGGIE out, and now we have the answer.

MAGGIE will now hit theaters via Lionsgate's partner company Roadside Attractions on May 8, according to Box Office Mojo. The film tells the story of a…

…deadly zombie virus that has put a plague on the world.  When Maggie, a vivacious young woman becomes infected, her father brings her home to let her be with their family.  As Maggie’s condition worsens, their relationship is tested, a father’s love holding on stronger than the disease. This heart-wrenching twist on the zombie apocalypse puts a human face on an inexplicable horror.

Bill Johnson and Ara Keshishian produced alongside Colin Bates, Joey Tufaro, Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, Matthew Baer and Schwarzenegger. Keep an eye here for more as we get it!
