[Movies] Norman Reedus And Djimon Hounsou To Star In Skybound Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.19.2014
Produced by Robert Kirkman...
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert Kirkman will produce the sci-fi thriller Air, which will star Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) and Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy). Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions is in final talks to pick up the film. Christian Cantamessa (writer and lead designer for the video games Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas) wrote the script with Chris Pasetto and will make his feature directorial debut.
Kirkman will produce with David Alpert of Circle of Confusion. Both men currently produce The Walking Dead. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Insidious) and Chris Ferguson will also produce.
Here's a synopsis from Kirkman's Skybound Entertainment: When Earth's atmosphere is all but destroyed, humanity's last hope is the personnel cryogenically frozen in an underground bunker. Reedus and Hounsou play the caretakers of the facility whose sanity is tested as they struggle to survive in the last bit of habitable space on Earth.
Skybound produces comics, TV shows (including new ones like NBC's Clone and Cinemax's Outcast, based on Kirkman's comic) and merchandising.
Reedus will executive produce with Bailey Conway and Noah Rosen. The film was previously set up at Boss Media in 2011 as Wake Cycle, but the rights lapsed and it went into hiatus before Kirkman and Circle of Confusion got involved.
