Two Norman Reedus-focused stories in a row? I’m sure you don’t mind. Anyway, this one’s a biggie. According to The Hollywood Reporter The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman is making the leap to the movies with a new thriller, Air, and he’s taking Reedus with him.
Reedus will star along with Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) in the low-budget sci-fi flick, which Kirkman is producing. Reedus is also signed on as an executive producer, with a script by Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas lead designer Christian Cantamessa and Chris Pasetto and direction by Cantamessa. The Hollywood Reporter describes the story this way:
“The story is set in an underground cryogenic facility after a nuclear fallout renders the atmosphere unbreathable. Air centers on its two custodial workers (Reedus, Hounsou), who take care of the cryogenically sleeping personnel that are to re-establish society, but they struggle to preserve their own sanity and lives while maintaining the extremely fragile environment of the last livable place on earth.”
Sounds tense and claustrophobic.
