Wiig Circling Project with Rudd, Wilson and Walken

Posted on January 4, 2012 and filed under Movies

Deadline is reporting that Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, and Christopher Walken are circling Freezing People Is Easy, a script by Zach Helm (Stranger Than Fiction) that Academy Award-winning filmmaker Errol Morris will direct. Film Rites’ Steve Zaillian and Garrett Basch are producing with This American Life‘s Ira Glass and Alissa Shipp.

Inspired by the memoir We Froze The First Man and an episode of This American Life, the film tell the true story of Bob Nelson, a 1960s Los Angeles television repairman who tried to pioneer the field of cryogenics by freezing humans. He quickly discovered that it was more difficult than he imagined.

The cast is pretty much locked — Rudd has been attached for months to play Nelson — though Bridesmaids star Wiig is the variable: she’s completing her run on Saturday Night Live and poring over several offers.
