Today Apple Original Films unveiled the trailer for Simon Cellan Jones’ (“Ballers” Arthur The King) upcoming action comedy, The Family Plan, starring Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Monaghan.
Directed by Cellan Jones, from a script by David Coggeshall (“Scream”, Orphan: First Kill), the film centres on Dan Morgan (Wahlberg) who loves his quiet suburban life as a devoted husband, father of three and successful car salesman. But that’s only half the story. Decades earlier, he was an elite government assassin tasked with eliminating the world’s deadliest threats. When enemies from his past track him down, Dan packs his unsuspecting wife (Monaghan), angsty teen daughter, pro-gamer teen son and adorable 10-month-old baby into their minivan and takes off on an impromptu cross-country road trip to Las Vegas. Determined to protect his family — while treating them to the vacation of a lifetime — Dan must put his long-dormant skills into action, without revealing his true identity.
The ensemble cast is rounded out with Zoe Colletti, Van Crosby, Saïd Taghmaoui, Maggie Q, and Ciarán Hinds.
Commenting on the impending release, Cellan Jones said “The Family Plan is a crazy rush of joyful energy that’s fun for the entire family. The stakes are high for the Morgan Family, and I hope audiences come away from the film recognizing themselves in the characters and wondering what their own family might do in a similar situation. We all know how easy it is to get stuck in the rut and routine of day-to-day life and The Morgans are no different. But I think you are going to love their journey. Most importantly, it’s about having fun. As you can tell by the trailer, Mark Wahlberg’s average dad has a past that comes back to haunt him, forcing him to take his brood on a hilarious family road trip to Vegas. All I can say is this is pretty much the most fun I have ever had making a movie. Fasten your seatbelts!”
The Family Plan will premiere on Apple TV+ December 15, 2023.
