If you are in the need of an all-around actor with whom you simply cannot go wrong, go with Stanley Tucci.

The makers of the upcoming horror movie called “Patient Zero” have figured this out and have hired this talented actor to play a psychotic, rabies-infected doctor with a diabolic agenda. We are already bought.


According to Deadline, Tucci will be again joining Natalie Dormer (they co-starred in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1), who will be playing the female lead in this post-apocalyptic rabies-horror.

Former Doctor Who, actor Matt Smith, is also on board, while the script has been penned by the screenwriter whose prime time is still coming, Mike Le and the main man behind the camera is reserved for Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters.)

The story is apparently set in a world affected by a huge pandemic of a “super strain of rabies,” which ends up evolving into something much more monstrous, violent and evil.

The protagonist of the story, who turns out to be immune to the pandemic and develops a strange ability to communicate with the infected, now has to hunt down the patient zero in order to save his wife and, of course, all of humanity.

Stanley’s Role(s)

Tucci will be portraying “an infected and dangerous professor who discovers there’s a lab working on a cure and begins working on a way to stop their efforts and prevent them from finding the source of the disease.”

The actor was quite a busy man in 2014, lending his voice to Leonardo da Vinci in “Mr. Peabody & Sherman,” staring in both Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction” and “Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.

2015 will apparently be just as successful as the previous year for this talented actor. Stay tuned.
