Stanley Tucci is set to play the villain in the action thriller "Patient Zero" says Deadline.
The story focuses on an unprecedented global rabies pandemic that
causes the evolution of a new species - violence-addicted predators. An
inexplicably gifted human survivor with the ability to speak the new
mutant language leads a hunt to find a cure.
Tucci will play “a deliciously evil role: a professor who becomes
infected, and highly violent. He becomes determined to crash the lab
that’s working on a cure and thwart the search for Patient Zero.”
Former Doctor Who star Matt Smith will act here opposite "Game of Thrones" and "Rush" co-star Natalie Dormer.
Mike Le penned the script from which Stefan Ruzowitzky's calling the shots.
Vincent Newman is producing the film.
