Maguire, Zobel Set For “Z for Zachariah”

Tobey Maguire and “Compliance” director Craig Zobel are teaming for the post-apocalyptic drama “Z for Zachariah” says Variety.

Nissar Modi’s script adaptation of Robert C. O’Brien’s novel follows a teen girl who lives alone maintaining a farm in the only valley with breathable air in the wake of nuclear war.

Her world is turned upside down when two strangers wander in from the forest. Maguire will play a rugged scientist with a past whom the girl nurses back to health after he is weakened by a contaminated stream.

Maguire will also produce alongside Matthew Plouffe, Gary Ross, Steve Bannatyne, Joni Sighvatsson, Skuli Malmquist and Thor Sigurjonsson.
