Mayday, Mayday, Mayday! Lionsgate has just dropped the first turbulent trailer for Jean-François Richet‘s (Blood Father, Assault on Precinct 13 (2005)) frenetic actioner Plane starring Gerard Butler (Olympus Has Fallen, Cop Shop, Law Abiding Citizen) and Mike Colter (“Evil,” South of Heaven, “Luke Cage”).
Directed by Richet, from a screenplay written by Charles Cumming and J.P. Davis (The Contractor), Plane centers around pilot Brodie Torrance (Butler) who saves his passengers from a lightning strike by making a risky landing on a war-torn island – only to find that surviving the landing was just the beginning.
When most of the passengers are taken hostage by dangerous rebels, the only person Torrance can count on for help is Louis Gaspare (Colter), an accused murderer who was being transported by the FBI. In order to rescue the passengers, Torrance will need Gaspare’s help and will learn there’s more to Gaspare than meets the eye.
The film also co-stars Yoson An (Mulan (2020), “The Luminaries”), Daniella Pineda (the Jurassic World franchise), Paul Ben-Victor (“Pam & Tommy,” The Irishman), Remi Adeleke (6 Underground, “The Terminal List”), Joey Slotnick (Twister), Evan Dane Taylor (Castle Falls, “Daredevil”), Claro de los Reyes and Tony Goldwyn (Ghost, The 6th Day, Last House on the Left), and is produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Constantine, RED, Salt), Mark Vahradian p.g.a (Annapolis, RED, Salt), Marc Butan p.g.a. (Killing Them Softly, We Own the Night), Gerard Butler, and Alan Siegel p.g.a. (Olympus Has Fallen, Greenland, Law Abiding Citizen).
