Josh Hutcherson has landed a new film. The young actor is set to not only join Seth Rogen’s new Hulu show pilot, Future Man., but help produce the comedy as well.
According to Variety, this new show is about “Josh, who’s a world-ranked videogamer by night, is tasked with preventing the elimination of the human race after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating an imminent super-race invasion. Still living at home with his parents, Josh has a dead-end job as a janitor at Devlin, a sexual disease research center.
He’s socially inept, has low self-esteem and can’t approach women, but the one thing at which he excels is Cybergeddon, a video game set in a dystopian future where his character, Future Man, has the top ranking in the world; when he beats the final level, he’s visited by characters from the game who claim it’s been his training manual and he’s been selected to travel back in time and help them save the world.”
Production on the new comedy will begin in the next few weeks!
