Oscar-nominated actor Djimon Hounsou and "The Walking Dead" star Norman Reedus have signed on to star in the sci-fi thriller "Air" (formerly title "Wake Cycle"), which will be released by Sony Pictures on a date to be announced. According to The Hollywood Reporter (in an article published on Feb. 18, 2014), "The Walking Dead" comic-book creator Robert Kirkman is one of the producers of "Air."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the director of "Air" is Christian Cantamessa, a co-writer/lead designer of video games "Red Dead Redemption" and "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas." Cantamessa wrote the script with Chris Pasetto.

Reedus usually stars in low-budget indie films, most notably 1999's "The Boondock Saints" and its 2009 sequel "The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day." (He probably would like to forget his co-starring role in the 2001 Mariah Carey bomb "Glitter.") Reedus is an executive producer of "Air."

Hounsou was nominated for an Oscar (Best Supporting Actor) for his roles in 2003's "In America" and 2006's "Blood Diamond." He also had prominent roles in 1997's "Amistad," 2000's "Gladiator" and 2005's "The Island." His other film roles include 2013's "Baggage Claim," 2014's "Guardians of the Galaxy," 2014's "How to Train Your Dragon" and 2015's "Fast & Furious 7."
