Coming out on top of a bidding war, Timur Bekmambetov has picked up the spec script Maggie, which offers a new twist on the popular zombie genre.

Henry Hobson will direct from a script by John Scott III.

Maggie is a 16-year old girl from a town in middle America who becomes infected by a zombie. But instead of becoming a zombie within minutes, it takes six months for Maggie to turn, and the film documents the transformation as she stays with her family.

No production date has been set.
