Chris Pine, Amanda Seyfried, and Chiwetel Ejiofor are set to star in Craig Zobel's upcoming post-apocalyptic thriller Z for Zachariah.

Based on the classic sci-fi novel by Robert C. O'Brien, the psychological thriller follows a teenage girl (Amanda Seyfried), who seems to be the only one left alive after a devastating apocalyptic event. Eventually a scientist (Chiwetel Ejiofor) finds her on the farm she is living on and they end up falling in love. Chris Pine will be portraying another young survivor, who complicates things between the new couple.

Craig Zobel is directing from a script by Nissar Modi. Tobey Maguire is producing with Matthew Plouffe, Skuli Fr. Malmquist, Thor Sigurjonsson and Joni Sighvatsson.

Production is slated to begin this August.
