Los Angeles - Child star and Little Miss Sunshine actress Abigail Breslin will have the lead in upcoming zombie film Maggie, which will star and is produced by movie veteran Arnold Schwarzenegger, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The plot follows a father, played by Arnold, whose daughter, played by Abigail, gets infected by a zombie virus that is plaguing humanity. Her father and her family have to come to grips with her imminent transformation, as does she. Despite zombie movies being typically action-packed, it appears this version will focus more on the emotional turmoil of losing your loved ones to the disease.

Commercial director Henry Hobson will head production with producers Schwarzenegger, Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, Matt Baer, Trevor Kaufman, Colin Bates and Joey Tufaro. Originally Chloe Moretz was pegged to play the lead role, but had to decline due to scheduling conflicts.

The screenplay, written by John Scott 3, was on The Black List in 2011, a survey done by studio execs to determine the best screenplays that aren't in production, which has included the likes of Juno, Slumdog Millionaire and Lars and the Real Girl.
