Norman Reedus is trading in zombies for sci-fi, and we have the scoop on his new flick Air — produced by none other than Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman.
Blastr’s Tara Bennett caught up with Reedus for a lengthy chat at San Diego Comic-Con, and the actor dug into what should set Air apart from other sci-fi fare (not to mention zombie fare). If you’re unfamiliar, Air is set in an underground fallout shelter after a catastrophic event renders the atmosphere unbreathable. The story focuses on two custodians, played by Reedus and Djimon Hounsou, who try to keep the facility running and stay sane while they wait for the world to heal.
It’s a fascinating premise, not unlike Duncan Jones’ indie sci-fi hit Moon, and after hearing Reedus talk about it we’re dying to actually see some more footage.
Of course, you can’t have a sit-down with Daryl Dixon himself and not talk about The Walking Dead, so we also hit him up for some details on Season 6. He couldn’t reveal too much, sadly, but he did talk about how the show teases fans — and it sounds like the next season might possibly be the best yet.
