Of the hundreds of title to have their world premieres at September’s Toronto International Film Festival, there is a fairly high-profile genre picture sneaking under the radar. Maggie, which marks the debut of director Henry Hobson, stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a Midwestern farmer whose teenage daughter (played by Abigail Breslin) slowly turns into a zombie after being infected by an unknown disease. The Tiff website describes Maggie as a “audacious, genre-bending debut.”
Some photos from the film, which put more of an emphasis on the diseases title character than Schwarzenegger’s Wade, are now online. Based on its festival pedigree and the description above, do not expect this to be a kick-ass thriller with the action star taking down zombies, but a more reflective drama about a man battling his own fears and anxieties.
The zombie drama/thriller looks like new territory for Schwarzenegger. However, his return to the »

Schwarzenegger will play the father of a young girl named Maggie (Breslin), who is infected with the virus and slowly turns into a cannibalistic zombie. Her dad takes her on a journey to help her come to terms with her infection as she turns.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's next movie an unlikely one for him. Maggie, which also stars Abigail Breslin, is an indie zombie flick where he plays a very worried dad. The first photos for Maggie have arrived and the Schwarzenegger we see here is different and even a bit rare. Check it out:
Maggie tells the story of a Midwestern farmer (played by Schwarzenegger) who stays by the side of his beloved teenage daughter (played by Breslin) even as she slowly turns into a cannibalistic zombie. The film is the debut feature of director Henry Hobson, and also stars Joely Richardson as Breslin's mom.
The film is scheduled to have its World Premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival. In the pictures below we see Maggie in the early stages of becoming a zombie – her eyes tell you that she's well aware of what's happening to her. There's also a »

The first images have arrived online for Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle, Maggie, in which he plays a Midwestern farmer charged with caring for his zombie daughter. She’s played by Abigail Breslin, and having been exposed to a rare virus, is gradually transforming into a flesh-hungry monster, much to the chagrin of her dear old dad. While the premise might sound like the set-up for a knockabout comedy in the vein of Life After Beth, these first images hint at a different tone entirely, with Arnie looking fraught and vulnerable as the...

Arnold Schwarzenegger's upcoming zombie film, called "Maggie," will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month. And now, we have the first five photos from the movie. Check everything out below. In "Maggie," as a "walking dead" virus spreads across the country, a farm family helps their eldest daughter come to terms with her infection as she slowly becomes a flesh-eating zombie. Schwarzenegger and Joely Richardson play father and mother, while Abigail Breslin is the young girl turning into a zombie. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
The story is about a teenage girl in the Midwest who becomes infected by an outbreak of a disease that slowly turns the infected into zombies. Whats even more alluring about this is the fact that the blossoming Abigail Breslin is in the film. That makes two zombie pieces for Abigail. She survived Zombieland but it doesnt appear shell be afforded the same fate in Maggie. Shes all zombied out and it should be a nice counter to a film like Zombieland in which shes obviously going to make it to see the final credits. »
Schwarzenegger is going to be in a horror genre film. Let that sink in for a moment. Sure, one can argue that The Terminator is essentially a sci-fi slasher. Also, don’t forget he directed a Tales from the Crypt episode as well. Before you cry out Predator as a horror film just simply know, I really don’t think of it as horror.
According to today’s post by Variety, his latest completed film, Maggie, has been added to the Toronto International Film Festival. If you haven’t heard about Maggie yet, good. That’s why we’re here. It has been mentioned online in the past but no one really knew if it was going to be a straight horror film, a drama, a comedy…no one knew. Well, more information has come out and it looks to be more of a zombie drama focusing on the conflict that a farmer, »

The Toronto International Film Festival announced more selections Tuesday for the upcoming 2014 edition of the annual awards season kick-off. The majority of the festival's program was announced last month, but this group includes intriguing world premieres from notable directors such as Todd McCarthy ("The Cobbler") and Gina Prince-Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights"). A number of the titles revealed have screened at other festivals including the underrated "Infinitely Polar Bear" and "Laggies" from Sundance as well as Cannes players "Two Days, One Night," "The Search" and "Clouds of Sils Maria." And yes, the presence of "Sils Maria," which is a favorite of this particular writer, means Kristen Stewart will likely hit one of the festival's many red carpets. As you'd expect for Toronto, the world premieres feature some big names including Josh Hutcherson and Benicio Del Toro in "Escobar: Paradise Lost," Jean Dujardin in "The Connection (La French)," Dustin Hoffman in "Boychoir, »

The Austrian Oak takes on the walking dead later this year as Arnold Schwarzenegger headlines the zombie drama Maggie from director Henry Hobson, and we’ve got the first images from the film for you ahead of its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. The film stars Arnie as Wade, a Midwestern farmer who stays by the side of his beloved teenage daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin) as she turns into a cannibalistic zombie during a global outbreak. Check out the first stills of the pair here…
Maggie is expected to arrive later this year.

Arnold Schwarzenegger.s name brings to mind giant action movies and excitement-filled science fiction blockbusters, but definitely not low-budget indie zombie movies. Yet, above is one of the first stills released for Henry Hobson.s directorial debut, Maggie, in which Schwarzenegger plays Wade, the father of a slowly changing Abigail Breslin. As you can tell from the actors. faces, this doesn.t look like a film that will be stockpiled with goofy jokes and laughter. The first screenplay written by John Scott 3 (yup, that's how he's credited), Maggie centers on a Midwestern family threatened to be torn apart by the titular character.s gradual transformation into a cannibalistic zombie. Breslin plays the dying Maggie, while Joely Richardson is also on board (though absent from The Playlist's images) as Wade.s wife Caroline. The official synopsis calls this a genre-bender, but I.m not sure what genres are being bent here. »
A zombie movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger could either be described as being a very fun or very dumb idea. However, Maggie looks like a very different type of zombie movie, and it should give The Expendables 3 and Terminator: Genesys star a chance to show off his serious side.
Maggie will see Schwarzenegger play a Midwestern farmer who cares for his teenage daughter (Zombieland and Little Miss Sunshine’s Abigail Breslin) as she slowly transforms into a zombie. Based on the images below, the movie will be a rather sombre outing, and it’s definitely an intriguing premise.
The images below (which you can see the full-size versions of by clicking on them) were released following the announcement that the movie will premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Maggie also stars Joely Richardson, but there’s currently no word on a release date.

5 photos have arrived for the upcoming zombie horror drama Maggie, which takes a unique spin on the living dead genre. Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as a concern father who must sit and watch as his beloved young daughter Maggie slowly succumbs to a zombie virus while living on their rural farm. Take a look at these first images, which promise a genre-bending tale between parent and child. We get a look at Arnold Schwarzenegger as Wade, standing in a burning field, waiting out the apocalypse. We also get to see Abigail Breslin as she slowly morphs into a brain-eating member of the walking dead.
As a virulent zombie epidemic spreads terror across the globe, a father (As) cares for his infected daughter while struggling to prepare her for the inevitable.
Maggie: Movie Pictures Gallery
The zombie genre may be reaching saturation, but the idea of the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger taking on hordes of zombies is simply too exciting to miss. However, the film Maggie, is a bit of a surprise from what we were expecting when we first heard “Zombie” and “Schwarzenegger” uttered in the same breath, as it sees Arnold caring for his daughter who is gradually succumbing to a zombie virus. That’s a lot more drama and heart than we thought we’d get, and makes for an even more exciting film. Henry Hobson makes his directorial debut after years in the industry designing and directing title sequences. This really sounds as though this could be something special, especially with a low budget suggesting this isn’t just another pay day for Schwarzenegger.

...things that are too good to be true are actually true.
In the Henry Hobson-directed zombie flick, Arnold plays the father of a 16-year-old girl (Abigail Breslin) who is infected with the zombie virus, staying by her side as she transforms from human being to flesh-eating monster.
Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger as a zombie's dad. We're not making this up, and we're so glad that we're not.
It was announced today that Maggie will be having its world premiere next month as part of the Toronto International Film Festival's 2014 lineup. The festival runs September 4th through the 14th, and Maggie will be one of many special presentations.
In the meantime check out a handful of stills from the film, »

Maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention, but when did Arnold Schwarzenegger get together with Abigail Breslin to make a movie about a farmer whose daughter turns into a zombiec That's right, the movie is Maggie and it's going to have its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September and in it Schwarzenegger plays a Midwestern farmer stays by the side of his beloved teenage daughter (Breslin) even as she slowly turns into a cannibalistic zombie. Debut director Henry Hobson is at the helm and Joely Richardson co-stars. I've included several more pictures directly below, if time allows I'll definitely be checking this one out in Toronto and if you're interested in the complete Toronto lineup click here. »

Sharing similarities with the upcoming Life after Beth, Maggie sees Arnold Schwarzenegger put the guns and explosions that have dominated his comeback so far on hold, playing a farmer who must care for his daughter (Abigail Breslin) when she starts turning into a zombie. The directorial debut of Henry Hobson, the film will have its first screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, who have shared the first images from the movie. While I didn't know what to expect after initially hearing the premise, these images do suggest something sombre and dark which should give both talents something meaty to chew on. Check them out below. »

As the Toronto International Film Festival looms closer, some images from the films that will be debuting at the Canadian showcase of cinema from around the world are trickling online. One of the more interesting titles is that of Maggie. Like Warm Bodies and Life After Beth, this film aims to put a new spin on the zombie genre by painting an intimate story of a father who vows to stay by his daughter's side as she turns into a flesh-eating zombie. Taking a father and daughter and using a zombie infection as a catalyst for drama should make for an interesting story, but we're a little skeptical with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the dramatic lead, even if he is paired with a talented young actress like Abigail Breslin. Look below now! Here's the first photos from Henry Hobson's Maggie from Tiff's official website: Maggie is directed by commercial director »

This morning the Toronto Film Festival added several more films to their lineup including the world premiere of Thomas McCarthy's The Cobbler which stars Adam Sandler as a New York City cobbler who, disenchanted with the grind of daily life, stumbles upon a magical heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world in a new way. The film co-stars Method Man, Ellen Barkin, Melonie Diaz, Dan Stevens, Steve Buscemi and Dustin Hoffman. Additionally, Sundance standouts Infinity Polar Bear and Laggies starring Keira Knightley and Chloe Grace Moretz were added to the Gala selection.
