3001: According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Saturday Night Live" regular Maya Rudolph and "Punk'd" standout Dax Shepard are close to lead roles in director Mike Judge's comedy 3001 opposite Luke Wilson for 20th Century Fox.

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. Rudolph, who is still in negotiations to join the cast, would will play a prostitute with Shepard starring as Frito, a defense attorney with a perpetually glazed-over look who becomes Bowers' court-appointed attorney.
