Chris Pine to star in Z for Zachariah film made in New Zealand

http://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment...Z-based-sci-fi

A post-apocalyptic film featuring Hollywood stars Chris Pine and Amanda Seyfried is to be shot in Port Levy on Banks Peninsula early next year.
The film, produced by Spiderman star Tobey Maguire and Icelandic company Zik Zak Filmworks, is based on the 1974 children's science fiction thriller Z for Zachariah by Robert O'Brien.
In the book 16-year-old Ann Burden survives a nuclear holocaust and nerve gas attack because her farm is located in a remote valley with its own weather system.
Her belief she is alone is shattered when a scientist arrives in the valley.
The screenplay departs from the book by bringing two men into Anna's orbit, not one.
Seyfried (Mama Mia) plays Anna while Pine (Captain Kirk in Star Trek Into Darkness) plays one of the men and British star Chiwelel Ejiofor the other.
Craig Zobel, well-known for indie films Compliance and Great World of Sound, will direct.
The producers have chosen a stately Port Levy home as the farmhouse and are looking at other locations around the peninsula and the region, but want to keep the project quiet to keep away nosy visitors.
They will be filming between January and March.
Production company Z4Z Productions is looking for accommodation in the area for up to 50 film crew. The company was set up by Steven Johnson, a Hollywood-based maker of music videos, commercials and independent films.
Port Levy is no stranger to movies, having featured in Peter Jackson's 1994 film Heavenly Creatures.
My memories of what I did at primary school fades a lot these days but Z for Zachariah was one novel I vividly remember and am excited to see it getting the big screen treatment.

Is it an action premise with bad guys or monsters or is it just about these people surviving on their own in a people-less world?

No monsters, IIRC. Ann was in the valley when the attacks occurred. The man (only one in the book) had roamed the country searching for survivors and drank from a contaminated stream and got sick.

IIRC this was made (by the BBC, I think) with Anthony Andrews in the role of the man. I remember really enjoying seeing this back in the day, and reading the book as a kid. It's uncanny that I should log on and see this here because I was only thinking about Z for Zachariah the other day!
