Paul Rudd is to star in a film as a TV repairman who attempts to freeze the dead.
The Knocked Up actor is set to play Bob Nelson, who starts his own operation to freeze dead people in the hope that they can be revived in the future, with disastrous results.
The untitled film, based on This American Life, would be directed by documentary maker Errol Morris and penned by Zach Helm, reported Entertainment Weekly.
Paul's next big-screen outings are Our Idiot Brother and Wanderlust.
He is also filming Judd Apatow's Knocked Up spin-off, previously titled This Is Forty, with Leslie Mann.
