Arnold Schwarzenegger is following in the footsteps of Brad Pitt by taking on an army of zombies in his latest movie.

The Terminator star, who returned to acting after stepping down as California Governor in 2011, has signed up to star in new horror blockbuster Maggie.

In the film he will play a father whose young daughter is infected with a zombie virus.

Actress Chloe Grace Moretz had initially agreed to play Schwarzenegger's onscreen daughter, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts, according to Variety.com.

Production on the film is due to begin later this year before Schwarzenegger is back in action for a new Terminator movie.
