Vikings co-star Clive Standen has joined the cast of the action thriller "Patient Zero" says Variety.
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.
Standen will play Sargent Knox, a
rough-around-the-edges military leader.
Former Doctor Who star Matt Smith will act here opposite "Game of Thrones" and "Rush" co-star Natalie Dormer. Stanley Tucci is set to play the villain.
Mike Le penned the script from which Stefan Ruzowitzky's calling the shots.
Vincent Newman is producing the film.
Filming is now underway.
