Earlier today we reported that Kristen Wiig doesn’t want to make a second Bridesmaids movie, but now she’s got a different project in the works, in which she’d star alongside Owen Wilson, Christopher Walken and Paul Rudd (who’s been attached since last year).
The film is Errol Morris’ Freezing People Is Easy, based on Robert F. Nelson‘s memoir We Froze the First Man and a This American Life segment titled You’re as Cold as Ice. Zach Helm is on screenplay duties for the fact based tale about Nelson, a TV repairman who attempted to devise his own method of cryogenic perservation in the 1960s. Things don’t go quite as planned, and Nelson winds up having to apologise to the families of those he’s tried and failed to freeze.
Rudd is in line for the central role, but it isn’t certain who the others will be. However Deadline believes they’re all pretty much locked in for the film, presuming the shoot stays on schedule for the middle of the year.
