A post-apocalyptic film...
Djimon Hounsou and Alexis Knapp are set to star in One, a new action film from Murali Thalluri. Main Street Films chairman Craig Chang and president Harrison Kordestani announced the castings today for the project, which is being co-produced with MK Create and the Kojo Group. Sammy Sheik will also star in a supporting role; more casting will be announced soon.
The film is set in a post-apocalyptic world after a virus has wiped out 99% of humanity, leaving those who have survived divided into separate racial groups all fighting each other to find a cure to help their own. When Ava's (Knapp) house is raided by Junaid soldiers, a group of racial minorities who have banded together, she is captured and sold to a medical research facility searching for a cure. When it becomes evident that Ava is immune to the virus she becomes not only the most valuable person on the planet, but the hope of the world.
Production kicks off this year in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
