First Look: Chris Pine & Cast in Post-Nuclear War 'Z for Zachariah'
After making a splash with the indie Concussion recently, director Craig Zobel is stepping up to a bigger film with Z for Zachariah, an adaptation of Robert C. O'Brien's 1974 novel of the same name. Now the first look at the film has just arrived with a promotional shot featuring the principal cast of Margot Robbie, Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor. The film follows a small-town girl (Robbie) who lives alone on a farm in the only valley with breathable air in the wake of nuclear war wiped out everyone else in her family. Suddenly, her world is turned upside down when two strangers wander in from the forest. Look!
Here's the first look at Craig Zobel's Z for Zachariah originally from Variety:
Z for Zachariah is directed by Craig Zobel (Concussion) and written by relatively unknown writer Nissar Modi, based on Robert C. O'Brien's book of the same name. Ann Burden (Margot Robbie) is completely alone. The world as she once knew it is gone, ravaged by a nuclear war that has taken everyone from her. For the past year, she has lived in a remote valley with no evidence of any other survivors. But the smoke from a distant campfire shatters Ann's solitude and soon two strangers (Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor) enter her valley. The film is in post-production and is expected in theaters sometime in 2015. Stay tuned for updates.
