Djimon Hounsou will star in drama “Get Some,” the first film greenlit by the revamped Summit Entertainment.

Lensing’s set to begin in July in Los Angeles and Florida, with Jeff Wadlow directing and Craig Baumgarten and David Zelon producing.

Summit’s partnered with the recently minted Mandalay Independent on “Get Some,” the first title to emerge under Cathy Schulman’s leadership.

Hounsou received a supporting actor Oscar nom earlier this year for “Blood Diamond.”

Summit has also cast Cam Gigandet (“The OC”) to star.

Along with “Get Some,” Summit’s going into production this summer on “Step Up 2.” Summit principals Robert Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger annually plan to distribute 10-12 pics, including eight that will be inhouse productions.

Hounsou’s repped by Gersh and Gigandet by CAA.
