Arnold Schwarzenegger

Over a year ago, Chloe Moretz continued her penchant for dark, unique dramas when she became attached to Maggie, a Black Listed drama about a 16-year old girl from a town in middle America who becomes infected by a zombie. However, this film is different then your average zombie flick as it actually takes six months for the girl to turn into a zombie and the story follows the affect it has on her family, mainly her father who continues to have nothing but unconditional love for her. However, Variety reports scheduling will keep Moretz from starring, but Arnold Schwarzengger has signed to play the father. More below!

Timur Bekmambetov won an auction to pick up the script, by John Scott 3, but it will be Schwarzenegger producing the film now along with Silver Reel and Lotus Entertainment, who have partnered with Silverlining Media Group and Gold Star films. Commercials director Henry Hobson (who was at the helm of this Resistance 3 trailer) will make his feature directorial debut for a film that sounds a little risky. Schwarzenegger isn't exactly the best dramatic actor, and rarely delves into any film that doesn't have a lot of action, so we're not sure how this seemingly intimate family tale is going to fare. Thoughts?

    In a stunning rewrite, Arnold will show unconditional love for his soon-to-be-zombie daughter, all the while driving tanks up some bio-engineer's ass for causing the zombie problem in the first place, and dropping one-liners while saving his daughter and humanity from the Brad Pitt movie World War Z.

      I'm with you on that. I like the concept. Too freakin' bad Moretz dropped out. Me likee Chloe...
      • grimjob
        Yeah, she's great. With this kind of role, it will need a lot of character depth to be as good as it could be, and she could handle that.
