Tobey Maguire and director Craig Zobel are teaming up for the post-apocalyptic drama Z for Zachariah.

The film will be an adaptation of a Robert C. O'Brien novel that centers on a teenage girl who must survive in the wake of a nuclear war. She tends to a farm in the only valley left with breathable air until her peace is disrupted by two strangers, who turn her life upside down.

Tobey Maguire will play a scientist who has a mysterious dark past. He will be serving as a producer with his Material Pictures parter Matthew Plouffe. The Hunger Games director Gary Ross is also producing with Steve Bannatyne from Lucky Hat Entertainment.

Craig Zobel is directing from a Black List script by Nissar Modi.

No production schedule has been released for this project.
