Arnold Schwarzenegger's Zombie Drama 'Maggie' Gets a Release Date
We haven't heard a peep from Maggie, the zombie drama starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin, since it was pulled from the Toronto International Film Festival in favor of an "early 2015" release date. Now, Lionsgate has announced that it will officially release the film on May 8.
Maggie looks to be a fairly significant departure for Schwarzenegger; although he's obviously no stranger to sci-fi, Maggie has all the marks of a somber drama with a sci-fi twist rather than a zombie actioner. More The Returned than World War Z, let's put it that way.
The official description for the film is as follows:
Maggie, a drama starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin, tells the story of a deadly zombie virus that has put a plague on the world. When Maggie, a vivacious young woman becomes infected, her father brings her home to let her be with their family. As Maggie's condition worsens, their relationship is tested, a father's love holding on stronger than the disease. This heart-wrenching twist on the zombie apocalypse puts a human face on an inexplicable horror.
