Arnold Schwarzenegger Cares for Zombie Daughter in First Images from MAGGIE

There were plenty of films I thought would end up at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, but an Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie flick was never among them.  But today, TIFF announced additions to this year’s Galas and Special Presentations lineup, and released the first images from Maggie.  The film stars Schwarzenegger as a Midwestern farmer who cares for his teenage daughter (Abigail Breslin) as she slowly turns into a cannibalistic zombie.  While that sounds like a delightfully goofy premise, these images convey a surprisingly somber tone, and now I’m even more eager to check out this odd picture.

Hit the jump to check out the Maggie images.  The film also stars Joely Richardson.  The 2014 Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 4 – 14th.

    I’m guessing in the end when he can’t control her anymore, he has to put her down himself.

      huh… never thought of it before, but yeah, this could effectively be a remake of Old Yeller!

    • Duder NME

      If she doesn’t bleed, he can kill her.

    Interesting choice for Schwartzenegger to take. Hope it’s good as it has an interesting premise. Hopefully we’ll get a trailer soon that’ll give us some idea of the tone of the film.

    • Travis Gowen

      He’s at a stage in his life where these are the type of movies he needs to be doing. His time as an action hero are long gone. If he wants to end his career with any sort of credibility, I think more dramatic films are what he needs to focus on. I too am very curious to see what the trailer is like.

  • Steven

    This could be awesome but it will definitely push Arnie to deliver a real performance.

    • LEM

      He’s incapable.

      • lord jim

        he was actually really good in sabotage, the only problem was that his performance didn´t make any sense with the new ending, but considering that in the original ending he turned out to be the bad guy, his performance really made sense and was spot on.

      • LEM

        Yeah there’s lots of 70 year old DEA agents still in the field. He should be more realistic with his choices and maybe he wouldn’t have the string of flops he’s racked up since returning to movies.

      • lord jim

        I don´t get your point.He was 66, maybe 65 when they shot this movie, and he didn´t look like it.could have been a 55 year old guy with a harsh life, and besides the new shit ending the movie was great fun.And your idea wouldn´t work anyway, because movies with old men aren´t ususally big on the money.

    A spin-off of The Walking Dead’s Governor, starring Arnold? I am all for it.

    • Philip Joseph

      OH shit!!! ur right

    • Dede

      I was thinking the same thing.

  • http://mattedscreen.blogspot.com/ TheMattedScreen

    If he can throw in a spastic tirade in German like he did in Escape Plan, I’m all in. That was seriously the best part of that whole movie.

  • http://www.beatific-design.com Beatific

    As long as it ends with Arnie having to get to the choppa.

    • LEM

      He couldn’t stop saying that shit in Expendables 3.

  • Mezmero

    I can see this as flip for Arnie he is a good actor with the right story.

    What?! Lol! Seriously Ah-old and zombies! No,nope,no way. Just the synopsis alone would make anyone smirk or laugh,especially if its a “somber” melodramatic approach.

  • KHW5

    Ok

  • DEADP00L

    *snort* mah douturs ah ZAHMBEE get to da choppaaaa!!!!

    • Duder NME

      Iz naht a toomah, iz deh apahkalips, aaguguaugughagughaghlol!

  • MIXTER

    I’ll see this! Sly surprised with Cop-Land, maybe this is Arnies version?

    • LEM

      It isn’t.

  • Mandy

    Well I’m intrigued. I have a soft spot for father daughter stores. It will definitely hinge on whether Arnold has the acting chops to do something more serious and heartfelt. Abigail Breslin has been great in everything I’ve seen her in so I’m definitely interested in seeing her turn zombie.

  • MJ

    I was just saying yesterday, why can’t we have more zombie movies/tv and more Schwarzeeagger movies? We get so little of each — it’s a travesty!

      Crazy to think that a man would move to a country other than the one they were raised. Never happened before.

      • Strong Enough

        and become a MIDWESTERN FARMER/? no

      • MJ

        You could really use a lesson in American History.

      • Strong Enough

        i know a lot of austrian immigrants coming to U.S to become FARMERS. sure. but its a movie so i’ll suspend my disbelief

      • Melwing

        Doesn’t have to be a lot of them. I guarantee there’s at least one.

      • Melwing

        Doesn’t have to be a lot of them. I guarantee there’s at least one.

        And he’s a 70 year old ex body builder with a zombie daughter.

      • Strong Enough

        THERE IS ALWAYS ONE!

      • lord jim

        it´s rather impossible to know many austrian immigrants because it´s a very small country, and i guess you don´t know many austrians who became governors, but you have to suspend your disbelief to imagine an austrian farmer in the states, like that could never happen – lol.

      • Strong Enough

        it could NEVER happen!

    Should be a granddaughter.

    • Pernell Whitaker

      Holy shit, did Arnie bang your mom or something? You hate him! Dont sweat it if he did though, he ran through ALOT of broads in the 80s/90s…

      • LEM

        Moms gotta bang too….So it shouldn’t be his grandaughter? the guy is pushin 70 and every role he’s had since his return to movies is unrealistic for a man of his advanced age and bra size.

      • Pernell Whitaker

        Lol, fair comment, but I can feel your hatred for the Austrian Oak in every comment.. Why do you hate him so much? He’s given us so many memorable moments – Commando, Predator, T2, Total Recall, Twins, Jingle All The Way…

      • LEM

        I like all those movies but the problem is he still thinks he can do those types of roles. He was never a good actor but got away with it because of his presence which is now deflated and If he took roles that suited who he is now or what he can portray this comeback might not seem so pathetic. He should try taking good parts in smaller movies or supporting roles instead of doing another Terminator movie, he doesn’t need the money.

    A midwestern farmer? get fucked Schwarzenegger.

    • Melwing

      Because no immigrant or person with an accent is involved in agriculture. Oh, wait.

    • Strong Enough
