3001: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Luke Wilson is getting very sleepy. The actor is set to star in Mike Judge's comedy 3001 for 20th Century Fox, playing a man who goes to sleep only to wake up 1,000 years in the future.
Shooting is scheduled to start in mid-April.
Penned by Judge and Etan Cohen, 3001 centers on Joe Bowers (Wilson), an average American who is selected for a top-secret hibernation program that finds him waking up and living among a society 10 centuries in the future. He finds that civilization is so dumbed-down that he is the most intelligent person alive.
That film is due for release later this year. He next stars alongside his brother Owen in Around the World in 80 Days.
Judge, the creator of "Beavis and Butt-head" and "King of the Hill," most recently directed 1999's Office Space. He is next attached to direct Meat in the Freezer, also for Fox.
