Maggie Explores Slow Zombie Transformation

“Wanted” director Timur Bekmambetov has picked up rights to John Scott III’s zombie-themed spec script “Maggie” reports Deadline.

Maggie is a 16-year old girl from a middle American town who becomes infected by a zombie. Unlike the movies, it takes six months for Maggie to turn and the film documents the transformation as she stays with her family.

Visual effects wizard Henry Hobson will direct the modestly-budgeted feature which Bekmambetov will produce.
