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.
