Djimon Hounsou is hopping over to The Island. The actor has signed on to star alongside Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson in the Michael Bay-directed sci-fi project, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The project centers on a harvested being (McGregor) who must escape the seemingly perfect facility where he's being held. The only person (Johansson) he can trust is also pregnant with the child of her sponsor. Hounsou will play the utopian community's head of security. Steve Buscemi will also appear in the film.

The Legend of Zorro writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will pen the screenplay, from a spec script by Caspian Tredwell-Owen. Bay is scheduled to begin shooting in late October. Hounsou, 40, last starred in Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, Biker Boyz and In America, for which he earned a best supporting Oscar nomination. He next stars opposite Keanu Reeves in Constantine, which is scheduled for release in February.
