Already shooting with Matt Smith, Natalie Dormer and Stanley Tucci at the top of the cast, Patient Zero has just found room for another player. Clive Standen has joined up to help face the rage-virus end of days.

The film's story revolves around an unprecedented infection spread across the Earth, unleashed from a super strain of rabies. The disease creates a new super-violent species of human, but when one survivor turns out to be inexplicably immune he begins the hunt for Patient Zero, with the immediate agenda of curing his infected wife and, by extension, the rest of humanity.

Smith is the survivor, with Dormer thought to be the wife and Tucci a psychopathic doctor. Standen, a face from Doctor Who, Robin Hood and Camelot who's found a big success in the History Channel's Vikings (and also played a Viking in Hammer Of The Gods) is playing Sergeant Knox: a military man struggling to keep the apocalyptic situation contained.

Mike Le (also behind Tyrese Gibson's developing **Desert Eagle) wrote the Blacklist-accredited screenplay and Stefan Ruzowitzky (Anatomy, Deadfall) is directing.

Patient Zero doesn't have a release date yet, but Standen can currently be seen in Vikings' just-started third season. He's also part of Baltasar Kormakur's **Everest, which is out in the UK in October.
