The first Z for Zachariah image has been released online, introducing us to director Craig Zobel’s (Compliance) adaptation of Robert C. O’Brien’s post-apocalyptic 1974 novel of the same name. The story revolves around a woman who believes she is the only survivor after a devastating nuclear event, only to have two strangers come across her small farm. The Wolf of Wall Street actress Margot Robbie plays the lead role, while Chris Pine and one of last year’s Best Actor Oscar nominees, 12 Years a Slave star Chiwetel Ejiofor, play the two strangers. The debut image doesn’t really tell us much about the film (other than the fact that Robbie is gorgeous no matter her hair color, obviously), but it’s an extremely curious choice of material for Zobel, who gained plenty of buzz for his 2012 small-scale character drama Compliance.
Check out the full Z for Zachariah movie image after the jump. The sci-fi thriller opens in theaters sometime next year.
