Story by Jack Foley

ARNOLD Schwarzenegger has signed up to star in new zombie film Maggie.

He will play a father whose daughter is infected by a walking dead virus that has spread across the country.

The script, which spent time on Hollywood’s fabled Black List, was written by John Scott 3 and the film will be directed by commercials director Henry Hobson. Schwarzenegger is also listed among the film’s producers.

Production is due to begin in the autumn.

The casting news continues a busy period for Schwarzenegger as he looks to complete a successful comeback to filmmaking following his stint as California governor.

He is also set to star in David Ayer’s Breacher and Mikael Hafstrom’s Escape Plan, which is set to be released in October, and has the third Expendables film and a fifth Terminator film in the pipeline, the latter of which is due to start production at the beginning of next year (2014).

He also recently sold the bodybuilding drama Pump to Showtime.
