Abigail Breslin Wants Arnold Schwarzenegger to Play Her Dad

By: Robert Kessler / July 24, 2013

Abigail Breslin is headed for Zombieland once again, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Breslin is set to star in Maggie opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger. The story is about a father (Schwarzenegger) whose daughter (Breslin) is infected with a walking-dead virus sweeping the nation. If the plot sounds familiar you’re probably thinking about World War Z/28 Days Later/Zombieland/I Am Legend/28 Weeks Later or another one of the thousand zombies movies to have come out recently.

Though the concept may sound a little stale, Maggie’s script was written by John Scott 3 and put on the Black List, a list of Hollywood’s best un-produced screenplays. First time director Henry Hobson is attached as well. Production is expected to begin in the fall.
