Djimon Hounsou has joined the cast of the post-apocalyptic adventure One, from Australian filmmaker Murali Thalluri, who will be directing from his own script. 

The intriguing premise for One sees it set in a world after a virus has wiped out 99% of humanity, leaving those who have survived divided into racial groups all fighting for a cure. 

No word yet on what role Hounsou has signed up to play in the South African-Australian co-production. 

He joins a cast that includes Alexis Knapp and Sammy Shaikh.

Main Street Films is co-producing and co-financing the film, with Greig Buckle of Enigma Pictures co-producing.

Kathy Morgan Intl. is repping the project's international sales at Cannes currently.

Hounsou will be seen next in The Anomaly.
