It looks like Matt Smith is digging hanging out with zombies, according to an exclusive from Deadline. The former star of "Doctor Who" and most recently, Screen Gems’ production "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies," will stick with Screen Gems and star opposite Natalie Dormer ("Game of Thrones") in "Patient Zero." The action thriller will be directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky, penned by Mike Le produced by and Vincent Newman.

Here's the film's description, thanks to Deadline...

In "Patient Zero," an unprecedented global pandemic of a super strain of rabies has resulted in the evolution of a new species driven by violence. An inexplicably immune human survivor with the ability to communicate with this new species must spearhead a hunt for "Patient Zero" in order to find a cure to save his infected wife and humanity.

In addition to these zombie (or, in this case, infected) flicks, Smith is starring in Paramount and Skydance’s "Terminator: Genisys" as well as the Ryan Gosling-directed, "Lost River."

No release date has been set for "Patient Zero" and "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" is still filming. We'll keep you posted on release dates.
