Chloe Moretz has been keeping busy lately, clearly determined to separate herself from the rest of the child acting pact. She’s played a hit-girl, a vampire and gun-slinging teenager.
The young actress is in negotiations to play a zombie opposite in Maggie, a film which tells of a father (Paddy Considine) living in a zombie apocalypse who stills loves his daughter (Moretz) even though she is a zombie [Variety].
Interesting twist to a quickly-tiring subgenre. Considine played an oddly similar role in Jim Sheridan’s brilliant In America, while Moretz seems to be enjoying playing a little crazy, as she’s also in line to star alongside Julianne Moore as the titular telekinetic in a Carrie remake.
Henry Hobson, a commercial director, is set to make his feature debut, working with a budget around of $10 million. The film will sell at Cannes and is set to begin production in September. One hopes this small thriller-drama can add some flavor to the zombie cinema.
