The first official image from Air, a movie which brings together Walking Dead star Norman Reedus and comic book writer, Robert Kirkman, has made its way online.
The movie stars Reedus and Djimon Hounsou, and is produced by Kirkman under the Skybound Entertainment banner.
This is what Reedus had to say to EW about the movie:
It’s a psychological thriller. It’s a story of two people who are pretty much the last people on the planet. They run a facility that has all the best of the best that’s being held in sleep tanks that will be re-awakened to populate the earth, and one of them thinks of their job as the scientist and the other thinks more of their job as a janitor. And the position is kind of in between both of those. But one of them discovers that the other has a secret, he’s holding onto the secret and that secret is that he’s trying to keep a certain person alive. And through the character I play, his past is such a dark one, and the guilt of what he’s done weighs so heavy on him that he sort of substitutes his real family for this other person in his mind, and he sort of looks at him as a brother in this way that’s a little too close for comfort. And what happens is he ends up forcing the action to take place against the other person’s will. So it becomes this thriller, this mindf— of a movie of convincing this other guy to do something he doesn’t want to do.
Well that's me sold. As a huge Walking Dead fan, I'd watch almost anything with Reedus in it - apart from perhaps The Vampire Diaries, 'cos that'd be weird - and Air sounds like a post-apocalyptic thriller worth checking out.
Air is slated to land in theaters Spring 2015.
