Lionsgate Co-Chief Operating Officer and Motion Picture Group President Steve Beeks said in a statement, "Maggie has all the ingredients that spell commercial excitement - a compelling script and an 'A' list superstar surrounded by a world-class cast. We're delighted to continue our relationship with Arnold Schwarzenegger, who turns in a performance that marks a dramatic departure from his action persona, and partner with our friends at Lotus Entertainment on a film that will resonate with thriller aficionados everywhere."
Bill Johnson and Jim Seibel, Co-Chairs of Lotus Entertainment, said, "Lionsgate is a world-renowned brand, and we're pleased to collaborate with Steve Beeks, Rob Friedman, Patrick Wachsberger and a motion picture team that has established a superb track record with this kind of material. Maggie takes the zombie genre in exciting new directions, and it offers something for everyone - star power, horror, suspense and riveting performances that will keep moviegoers on the edge of their seats."
The film, which stars Schwarzenegger alongside Abigail Breslin, Amy Brassette, Aiden Flowers and Rachel Whitman Groves, follows the story of an infected young girl during a worldwide zombie-virus plague, and how it effects her family.
"Maggie" is slated for November 20, 2014 release.
