Looks like Abigail Breslin can put her "Zombieland" knowledge of the undead to use: the actress is set to become a zombie herself in the Arnold Schwarzenegger film "Maggie."

Breslin will play the titular character, Schwarzenegger's daughter, who is infected by a zombie virus that has been sweeping the nation. The story, based on a Black List script by John Scott, will focus on Schwarzenegger helping Breslin come to terms with her diagnosis.

Though it's a bit of a stretch picturing the 66-year-old Schwarzenegger as 17-year-old Breslin's father, "Maggie"'s Black List association -- reserved for the top unproduced screenplays in Hollywood -- lends the film some credibility. Here's hoping the movie can live up to its promise.

"Maggie," directed by Henry Hobson, is set to start production this fall.
