Arnold Schwarzenegger Tends To His Zombie Daughter In First Images From Maggie
If we told you that Arnold Schwarzenegger was starring in a movie in which he looks after his daughter who is slowly turning into a zombie, you'd probably expect it to be more of a comedy actioner than a tense horror thriller. However, as these first images from Henry Hobson's 'Maggie' show, this is no comedic romp through the already over-explored zombie genre.
Maggie, which also stars Abigail Breslin in the titular role, was just confirmed on the line-up for next month's Toronto International Film Festival as part of the event's Galas and Special Presentations collection. Schwarzenegger is seen playing a surprisingly tender father figure as Breslin's Maggie slowly descends into a cannibalistic zombie.
The plot for Maggie sounds suitably dark with Schwarzenegger playing Wade, a devoted midwestern farmer who must protect his daughter after she contracts a rapidly-spreading disease that creates a slow transition of its victims into mindless zombies. Joely Richardson stars alongside Breslin and Schwarzenegger. Maggie is slated for a November 2014 release.
