Abigail Breslin Set for Genre Thriller ‘Peste’ From IM Global

Abigail Breslin (“Ender’s Game”) will take the lead in “Peste,” a contagion thriller from IM Global’s genre label Octane skedded to go into production in September.

Mark Tonderai (“House at the End of the Street”) helms from a spec script by Barbara Marshall that IM Global picked up late last year after it hit the Black List.

Breslin will play a young girl whose family is quarantined after a virus sweeps their small town.

Academy Award-nommed for “Little Miss Sunshine,” Breslin has demonstrated her genre chops in a series of titles.

“Abigail is one of the outstanding talents of her generation,” said IM Global CEO Stuart Ford.

He added that her recent “standout performances in genre hits like ‘Zombieland,’ ‘The Call’ and the forthcoming ‘Ender’s Game’ make her a perfect fit for ‘Peste.’”

Breslin will next be seen in “August: Osage County.” She is repped by ICM and Lichter, Grossman, Nichols, Adler & Feldman.
