Morgan Freeman to Star in 'Air Force One'-Like Actioner, ‘Down to a Sunless Sea’

Morgan Freeman has signed up to star in Focus Features’ “Down to a Sunless Sea,” an action movie scripted by David Gleeson, whose plot is being kept under wraps for now, except for comparisons being made to “Air Force One.”

Also now details on what role exactly Freeman will play.

The film will be produced by Freeman’s own Revelations production house.

Upcoming for Freeman include a sequel to the Antoine Fuqua-directed White House actioner, “Olympus Has Fallen,” titled “London Has Fallen;” he’s also teamed up with HBO for a miniseries based on the life of Bass Reeves; he will star alongside Michael Caine and Alan Arkin in New Line’s remake of the 1979 caper film, “Going in Style;” and he’ll be working with National Geographic Channel on “The Story of God,” which he will host and executive produce.

The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
