Remember the cute little girl from Signs and Little Miss Sunshine? Well, now Abigail Breslin is 17-years-old and having had a few run-ins with the undead in Zombieland, she’s now returning to zombie territory for Maggie.
She’s in talks to play the title role, according to THR, which will see her starring opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger. Chloe Moretz was originally set to play Maggie, but she’s been forced to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.
In the movie, a zombie epidemic has spread across the country. The main plot follows a father (Schwarzenegger) whose daughter Maggie (Breslin) has become infected, as he tries to get her to come to terms with the plague and her fate, before she becomes one of the walking dead.
Commercials director Henry Hobson is set to make his feature directorial debut with Maggie, which is based on a script by John Scott 3. Filming will start later this year.
