Craig Robinson rarely gets leading roles, but that’s okay since he ends up stealing the movie or TV show he’s on anyway. His latest gig doesn’t look like it will change his M.O. as he’s signed on to play the Anti-Christ in the comedy Rapturepalooza. The script has a great premise: the story is set a year after the Rapture and half the world’s population has been beamed up to the heaven spaceship. In between blood rainstorms and talking locusts and other fun post-religious apocalyptic events that religious folks are totally cool with letting the rest of us endure, main characters Ben and Lindsey are trying to run a sandwich cart business. Matters are made worse when the Anti-Christ chooses Lindsay to be his new bride.
Deadline reports that the project is gearing up for a spring start at Lionsgate. Robinson, who will shoot the project while on hiatus from The Office, will also serve as an executive producer on the film.
