First he battled Freddy and Jason at the same time in Freddy vs. Jason. Then he went on a sweaty road trip with a bunch of nerds in the soon to be released Fanboys. Now Christopher Marquette is getting ready to fight the Infestation. According to the Hollywood Reporter, he has signed on for the lead in the new comedic horror flick from Icon Productions. Kyle Rankin (The Battle of Shaker Heights) has signed on to direct; he also wrote the script.

Infestation is being described as 28 Days Later meets Shaun of the Dead, but that's kind of an oxymoron. The film will follow a deadbeat twenty-something who finds himself wrapped in a cocoon on the wall of his office. It seems the world has been taken over by giant alien insects, and only he can lead a ragtag group of office co-works to survival.

Production begins May 28 in Sofia, Bulgaria.
