Deadline is reporting that Kate Micucci (The Big Bang Theory), Sam Huntington (Rosewood), Dan Harmon (Rick and Morty) and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) are set to star in director Vivieno Caldinelli (This House Has 22 Minutes) dark comedy Corpse Tub.
The film “follows a young Midwestern couple (Micucci, Huntington) who take a chance on moving to L.A. when they find an apartment with impossibly low rent. It’s soon revealed that the former occupant was an enigmatic cult leader (Taika Waititi) who ended his life in the claw-foot bathtub. Now, a steady stream of his eccentric cult members break into the apartment to kill themselves in the tub in honor of their leader. Unable to afford another move, they soon find themselves inexplicably drawn into the cult, all the while navigating the inquiries of a beleaguered LAPD detective (Harmon) obsessed with selling a screenplay based on his own life.”
In addition to Micucci, Huntington, Harmon and Waititi, the supporting cast for the film includes Maria Bamford, Mark McKinney, Rhea Seehorn, Brian Posehn, Dana Gould, Josh Brener, J Lee, Brian Girard, Lilan Bowden, Jon Dore, Mindy Sterling, Michael St. Michaels, Craig Cackowski, Britney Young, Ryan Simpkins and Ron Lynch.
