"Patient Zero" - the Mike Le scripted film about a global pandemic starring Matt Smith begins production in London today. Joining Matt in the cast are Natalie Dormer ("Game of Thrones"), Stanley Tucci ("The Hunger Games") and Clive Standen ("Vikings").
Oscar winner, Stefan Ruzowitzky is set to direct the screenplay and "Patient Zero" will be produced by Vincent Newman ("The Betrayed"):
In Patient Zero, an unprecedented global pandemic of a super strain of rabies has resulted in the evolution of a new species driven by violence. An inexplicably immune human survivor with the ability to communicate with this new species must spearhead a hunt for Patient Zero in order to find a cure to save his infected wife and humanity.We can add "Patient Zero" to the list of films starring Matt Smith that we're (im)patiently waiting for: "Lost River", "Terminator: Genisys" and "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies". We're in for a treat or two by the sounds of it.
Best of luck to all involved with "Patient Zero" - and we'll keep you updated with further news when it emerges.
