Everyone's favorite Walking Dead character is getting his own personal apocalypse movie. Set in an underground facility isolated from the destroyed future Earth, Norman Reedus is the caretaker for the only survivors left on the planet, who all happen to be frozen.


The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Djimon Hounsou and Reedus will be starring in the movie titled Air, which is also produced by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. Christian Cantamessa (who co-wrote the script with Chris Pasetto) will make his directorial debut on this film. Here's the premise (it's kind of wacky):

The story is set in an underground cryogenic facility after a nuclear fall-out 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.


Honestly, more Reedus is like more pizza — always good. So we're down. Fingers crossed for our boy Daryl and his wonderful poncho of many colors.
