First Look: Arnold Schwarzengger & Zombie Abigail Breslin in 'Maggie'
As the Toronto International Film Festival looms closer, some images from the films that will be debuting at the Canadian showcase of cinema from around the world are trickling online. One of the more interesting titles is that of Maggie. Like Warm Bodies and Life After Beth, this film aims to put a new spin on the zombie genre by painting an intimate story of a father who vows to stay by his daughter's side as she turns into a flesh-eating zombie. Taking a father and daughter and using a zombie infection as a catalyst for drama should make for an interesting story, but we're a little skeptical with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the dramatic lead, even if he is paired with a talented young actress like Abigail Breslin. Look below now!
Here's the first photos from Henry Hobson's Maggie from TIFF's official website:
Maggie is directed by commercial director and title sequence designer Henry Hobson, making his feature filmmaking debut with a script from debut screenwriter John Scott 3 which made the Black List in 2011. Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in the film as Wade, a Midwestern U.S. farmer who stays with his beloved teenage daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin of Little Miss Sunshine, New Year's Eve) as she slowly turns into a cannibalistic, flesh-eating zombie. Joely Richardson also stars in the film which premieres next month at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival but doesn't have an official release date yet. Interested yet?
