This Deadline story is the most recent information I could find.

Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, and Christopher Walken are circlingFreezing People Is Easy, a script by Zach Helm (Stranger Than Fiction) that Academy Award-winning filmmaker Errol Morris will direct. Film Rites’ Steve Zaillian and Garrett Basch are producing with This American Life‘s Ira Glass and Alissa Shipp.

Inspired by the memoir We Froze The First Man and an episode of This American Life, the film tell the true story of Bob Nelson, a 1960s Los Angeles television repairman who tried to pioneer the field of cryogenics by freezing humans. He quickly discovered that it was more difficult than he imagined.
