He’s done the “rise of the machines” thing, and now Arnold Schwarzenegger is ready to tackle a zombie apocalypse. Variety reports that Schwarzenegger has signed on to star in and produce Maggie, which takes place during a zombie outbreak. The Governator will play a father whose daughter has been infected and is slowly turning into a member of the undead. Commercial director Henry Hobson will direct from a Black List script by John Scott 3, and Chloe Grace Moretz was at one time set to star as the young girl but it appears as though she’s fallen off the project.
Production on Maggie is set to get underway this fall, after which Schwarzenegger will shoot The Expendables 3 followed by the long-promised Terminator 5, which is aiming to start filming early next year. He also recently entered talks to star in a remake of The Toxic Avenger. The actor will be seen in theaters opposite Sylvester Stallone this October in the prison break pic Escape Plan.
