Paul Rudd Will Star in a Movie From Errol Morris and Ira Glass

Paul Rudd.

A not-too-shabby group of collaborators, right? While promoting his new documentary Tabloid, Errol Morris has been discussing his next movie, and it sounds intriguing: Based on a segment called "You're Cold As Ice" from "This American Life" (and with that program's host, Ira Glass, collaborating on the project with Morris), it will star Paul Rudd as real-life TV repairman Robert Nelson, who pioneered cryogenics technology in the sixties, though freezing dead people in the hopes of reanimating them later didn't quite go according to plan. Still, if Paul Rudd wanted to take care of you on your deathbed, you'd probably say yes, right? [NYO via /Film]
