Paul Rudd To Star In Errol Morris Non-Doc Feature

Actor Paul Rudd is attached to start in Errol Morris’ next project, an untitled feature film about the first man to be frozen cryonically.

The film will be based on the memoir We Froze The First Man, written by Robert F Nelson, the 1960s developer of the original technology used and a segement from the radio series This American Life titled “You’re Cold as Ice.” Stranger Than Fiction’s Zack Helm is handling the screenwriting detail for this.

It is unknown of Rudd will be playing Nelson or James Bedford, the first person to undergo the process.

Morris is primarily known as one of the premier documentary directors of our time thanks to his work with the films The Thin Blue Line, Fast, Cheap And Out Of Control and the Academy Award-winning The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara. This film will be his first non-documentary film since 1991 ‘s Dark Wind.
