Three comics board ‘Rapturepalooza’

Lennon, Heubel, Corddry join post-apocalyptic laffer

Lionsgate has enlisted funnymen Thomas Lennon, Rob Huebel and Rob Corddry for its low-budget laffer “Rapturepalooza.”

Anna Kendrick (“Up in the Air”) and “Bones” thesp John Francis Daley star in the post-apocalyptic comedy as two smart-mouthed teens who battle their way through the fallout of a religious apocalypse in order to defeat the Antichrist, who will be played by “The Office” star Craig Robinson.

While Lennon and Huebel’s roles remain unclear, Corddry is set to play Daley’s father, who works as one of Robinson’s security guards.

Veteran commercials helmer Paul Middleditch is directing from a script by Chris Matheson, who is exec producing with Robinson. Mosaic and Ed Solomon are producing the pic, which is one of the first projects under Lionsgate’s new microbudget initiative to make a handful of movies each year costing $2 million or less.

Lennon recently appeared in Fox Searchlight’s “Cedar Rapids.” The “Reno 911!” vet will soon be seen in Columbia’s “Bad Teacher,” 20th Century Fox’s “What’s Your Number?” and Warner Bros.’ “A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas.”

Huebel was recently seen in “Little Fockers,” “Life As We Know It” and “The Other Guys.” Thesp next co-stars in Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants” and Rob Minkoff’s “Flypaper.”

Corddry recently wrapped the Weinstein Co. comedy “Butter” and, as first reported by Variety, entered negotiations to co-star in Focus Features and Mandate Pictures’ romantic comedy “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.”

CAA reps Lennon and Huebel. WME reps Corddry. All three thesps are managed by Principato-Young Entertainment.
