Abigail Breslin to team up with Arnold Schwarzenegger as a zombie daughter in Maggie

Jul. 25, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Arnold Schwarzenegger now has a co-star for MAGGIE, the father-zombie-daughter pic from commercial director Henry Hobson. Abigail Breslin (THE CALL, SIGNS, ZOMBIELAND) will play the titular role in the film, which is "about a father (Schwarzenegger) whose daughter, Maggie (Breslin), is infected by a walking-dead virus that has spread across the country." The black list script comes from John Scott 3 (yes, he really has a numeral 3 at the end of his name) and it's unclear what genre (outside of zombie) the film will be (i.e. action, horror, comedy, or some combination).

Schwarzenegger is one of the producers of the film and it's one of many stacked on his plate. The actor is going full steam ahead after reemerging earlier this year with THE LAST STAND. He'll next be seen in ESCAPE PLAN, with long-time pal Sylvester Stallone, and early next year with director David Ayer's SABOTAGE. Breslin, who has been a rising star since she emerged on the scene will next be seen in the sci-fi adaptation of ENDER'S GAME.

MAGGIE begins shooting in the fall.

We all know what happened last time Arnold did a father-daughter movie...

Extra Tidbit: Does this sound like a good project for Schwarzenegger or just an odd one? Too soon to tell, maybe?

Suddenly this reminds me of The Last of Us, only with Ahnuld. Actually the father-daughter vs the apocalypse plot is basically a trope now. Let's just see how this one plays out.

I like Schwarzenegger and his flicks from when I was a kid. However, wouldn't Breslin be more like a granddaughter to him?

She's gone from a cute little girl to a beautiful young woman. A fine actress, too. I prefer her to most of her contemporaries.

I saw Warm Bodies on the plane recently and did like it a lot. If this is anything like that, but with Schwarzenegger in the John Malkovich role, that would be really cool.
