Chloe Moretz lines up zombie drama

The 'Dark Shadows' actress is eyeing the lead in 'Maggie'

Chloe Moretz is set to join new zombie drama Maggie.

The acclaimed teen actress will likely follow her turns in Let Me In and Dark Shadows, which opens this weekend, with another foray into the supernatural, according to Variety.

She is eyeing the lead in the new film directed by Henry Hobson, with Paddy Considine starring as her father. Maggie follows the spread of a horrific, undead-birthing virus that sweeps the US. One of the victims is a Midwest girl, the eldest daughter in a family, who starts down the path to becoming a zombie.


The family must face the creeping dread of watching her slowly take her new form. The script has been written by John Scott 3, and the film will be sold at Cannes with a view to a shoot starting in September.

Moretz is turning into one of the busiest young actresses in Hollywood, already attached to Carrie, Dennis Wilson biopic The Drummer, Karyn Kusama’s The Rut and The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea. It was suggested this week that scheduling commitments could keep her out of Kick-Ass 2.
