As one of the biggest Arnold Schwarzenegger nerds on the planet, I might be biased about this (okay I am definitely biased about this) but I think Maggie looks like one of the most interesting movies of the year. It’s a horror drama about a father trying to protect his daughter after she’s infected with some kind of zombie virus. The daughter is Abigail Breslin; the father is Schwarzenegger. Admittedly I don’t see (or hear) much of a family resemblance, but the themes this story touches on — parental responsibilities, broken families, an aging hero fighting against an increasing sense of irrelevance — jive perfectly with the stuff Schwarzenegger continues to explore throughout the latter half of his career.
As we gear up for the Toronto International Film Festival, once again, more titles have been announced to make debuts at the big event up north, including Arnold Schwarzenegger's zombie movie, 'Maggie.' In addition to the announcement, the first official photos from the film have hit the web, showing the softer side of the zombie apocalypse.
Look at that headline. We know it sounds like a joke from The Onion, but we promise every word is true. 'Maggie' - starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and now Abigail Breslin - is a real movie that people are actually making. With money and such.
If you thought 'Warm Bodies' was an unusual take on the zombie movie genre, then you probably haven't heard of 'Maggie.' The film centers around a dad who's trying to get his zombie daughter to embrace her impending undead transformation. If that didn't sound out of the ordinary to you, just wait -- the dad in question will be played by Arnold Schwarzenegger!
