Infinite is an action/thriller, based on the novel The Reincarnationist Papers by D. Eric Maikranz, that tells the story of a group of men and women who are continuously reincarnated century-after-century to battle an evil madman bent on world destruction. The fate of the planet, it turns out, may reside with a schizophrenic man who will have to come to terms with the fact that his dreams are memories from his countless past lives.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura (the Transformers franchise) will be producing alongside Mark Vahradian and John Zaozirny of Bellevue Productions. Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer 2, The Magnificent Seven, Southpaw) will direct, with John Lee Hancock (The Founder) and Ian Shorr (Splinter) currently attached as screenwriters. Rafi Crohn will serve as executive producer.

Ejiofor’s casting comes a day after Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson signed on to the roster. The movie will also star Sophie Cookson (Gypsy, Kingsman: The Secret Service) and Kae Alexander (Ready Player One, Deep State).

Infinite is scheduled to hit theaters on August.

In addition to earning an Oscar and Golden Globe nomination for his role in 12 Years a Slave, Ejiofor is known for his roles in the 2010 Angelina Jolie-led action-thriller Salt, the 2015 sci-fi action drama The Martian and 2016’s Marvel Cinematic Universe hit Doctor Strange.
