Morgan Freeman is ready for action.

The actor, who recently appeared in “Ted 2” with Mark Wahlberg and “Lucy” with Scarlett Johansson, just signed on as one of the stars of the Focus Features project “Down To A Sunless Sea” and his company will be one of the producers, Deadline reports.

Though details of the script by David Gleeson (“Cowboys & Angels”) remain under wraps, the story is said to be similar in tone to “Air Force One,” the Harrison Ford-starring movie about hijackers who seize the plane carrying the American president, according to Deadline.

Freeman next will appear in “Momentum” with Olga Kurylenko this fall and has shot the remake of “Ben-Hur.”
