Michael Rooker joins Paramount Players’ Monster Problems

According to Deadline, Guardians of the Galaxy star Michael Rooker has signed on to join Dylan O’Brien in Paramount Players’ upcoming post-apocalyptic film Monster Problems. Rooker is set to play the role of expert hunter named Clyde, who will serve as Joel Dawnson’s (O’Brien) mentor on how to survive the Monster Apocalypse.

Monster Problems will be directed by Michael Matthews with Shawn Levy set to produce through his 21 Laps banner. The project is said to be a coming-of-age story that will center around a road trip with a young man living in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by monsters. The film is likened to both Mad Max and Zombieland with John Hughes overtones.

The spec script arrives from Brian Duffield who also wrote Jane Got a Gun. Levy jumped onboard the property way back in 2012, and the project has since lingered in Development Hell.

Matthews directed the South African Western thriller Five Fingers for Marseilles about the young ‘Five Fingers’ who fought for the rural town of Marseilles, against brutal police oppression twenty years ago.

Rooker is no stranger to the post-apocalyptic genre as he appeared in AMC’s hit zombie series The Walking Dead. For three seasons, he portrayed the role of Daryl Dixon’s older brother Merle. Rooker is also known for his role as Yondu in Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy, starring alongside Chris Pratt, Zoey Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. He will next be seen in Sony’s film adaptation of Fantasy Island which set to premiere in 2020.
