We were just thinking that we hadn’t heard much lately about MAGGIE, the unusual new zombie drama starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, when along came word this morning that the movie will have a prestigious world premiere next month.
The Toronto International Film Festival announced that MAGGIE will debut as part of its Special Presentations lineup. Schwarzenegger stars as Wade, a Midwestern farmer trying to care for his daughter (Abigail Breslin) as she succumbs to a disease that turns its victims into the walking dead.
