Waiting on Zombies

Upcoming zombie projects!

1) Maggie

I posted about this film last year, but details have finally come out about it. Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as a father who struggles to care for his daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin) as she slowly succumbs to the zombie plague. Wikipedia says it will be released early 2015 with Lionsgate as distributor. The film has a small cast and a low budget, but since the film focuses on the characters and seems to be more personal, this isn't necessarily a bad thing.

2) Patient Zero

I just found out Jonathan Maberry's book was being adapted for the screen and it announced today that Natalie Dormer (of Game of Thrones and The Tudors fame) will be joining the cast. Stefan Ruzowitzky is set to direct and I hope it's going to be good.

3) Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

This film has been in the works since the book came out 5 years ago. After both Keira Knightly and Natalie Portman were supposed to star at one time or another, Lily James is finally cast as Elizabeth Bennet. Sam Riley (who was awesome in Maleficent) also stars as Mr. Darcy. Lena Headey and Charles Dance from Game of Thrones have also been added to the cast, but their role hasn't been revealed. Matt Smith is Mr. Collins, which should be fun. Can't wait for this movie to finally come out!
