Z for Zachariah

Tobey Maguire

After toying around with frail human dependence on authority figures in Compliance (which hits select theaters on August 17th), director Craig Zobel will team with Tobey Maguire for the post-Apocalyptic feature Z for Zachariah according to Variety. Maybe it will ease our hunger for letter-based-end-of-the-world films like Y: The Last Man and World War Z which still haven’t seen the light of day. The movie is based on the Robert C. O’Brien book with a script from newcomer Nissar Modi. Continuing the trend of young adult novels featuring strong, young female leads, the story here concerns a 16-year-old girl who believes she is the last survivor of a nuclear war. Fortunately, there’s at least one other survivor – a scientist (the role Maguire will play) who is ill and getting worse. At the heart of the drama is their relationship and the love and suspicion that keeps it on an uneven keel. So there’s more Apocalypse on the way. Our long national nightmare, continues. Hopefully you’ve stocked up on bottled water.
