Maggie Grace has booked a lead in Lionsgate’s “478,” the revenge thriller starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Scoot McNairy.

The film, directed by Elliott Lester and produced by Darren Aronofsky‘s Protozoa Pictures, follows a man (Schwarzenegger) who loses his wife and children in a plane crash.

The American Film Market title is currently in production in Ohio. Scott Franklin and Eric Watson join Aronofsky as producers. Emmett Furla Oasis Films is on board as financier.

Grace just wrapped production on “The Scent of Rain and Lighting,” which she produced and starred in with Maika Monroe. Next, she will be seen in the Nicholas Sparks adaptation “The Choice,” also from Lionsgate, which opens Feb. 5. She’ll also appear in the Michael Wilson indie “Showing Roots” with Uzo Aduba.

Grace is repped by UTA, Zero Gravity Management and Jackoway Tyerman.
