Brian Geraghty (“The Hurt Locker”) is in negotiations to star in Robert Zemeckis’ “Flight” for Paramount Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows a commercial airline pilot (Denzel Washington) who saves the lives of his passengers during a plane crash. When an investigation reveals the pilot was abusing drugs, they try to cover up the findings.
Geraghty will play Washington’s co-pilot, who turns to religion after the crash. Don Cheadle and Bruce Greenwood are also in negotiations to star.
