We first told you about this upcoming new project (titled Rapture-Palooza) back in March, when it was announced in a press release revealing Lionsgate's new micro-budget initiative; it was one of 3 or 4 titles mentioned in the release, and, at the time, its description was limited to just a one-liner that labeled it "a comedic look at life after the fallout of a religious apocalypse."

Now, we have an official, much more revealing synopsis, thanks to THR, which reads: "A year after the Rapture has removed much of humanity from Earth and the planet has been rendered as a hellish proving ground, Ben and Lindsey try to reestablishing their sandwich cart business. Beyond the occasional blood rainstorm and talking locusts that surface occasionally, the sandwich sellers have a new problem: the Anti-Christ decides he wants to take Lindsey as his bride."

Craig Robinson plays the Anti-Christ! And, announced earlier today, the couple will be played by Anna Kendrick (Lindsey, who the Anti-Christ wants to take as his bride), and John Francis Daley of Bones (as the husband).

Chris Matheson wrote the script for what is being billed as "“Zombieland meets The Big Lebowski," and Paul Middleditch (an acclaimed director of commercials) will direct.

The film, currently in pre-production, is scheduled for a 2012 release.

Craig Robinson seems to be establishing himself as comedic leading man material, with Tina Gordon Chism's We The Peeples, in his immediate future, co-starring alongside Kerry Washington, David Alan Grier, S. Epatha Merkerson and Kali Hawk.

    Pure idiocracy. Or ridiculosity.

    I'm there...because Craig is A+ in almost everything I've seen him in.

    I don't know if I'm on board with this. The premise is way too unbelievable...

    I mean, why would the Anti-Christ be hell bent(pun intended) on taking Anna Kendrick for his bride? Did he not see "Up in the Air"? Are there no other women left on earth?
