Christina Ricci is in negotiations to star in ABC’s 1960s-set sexy soap “Pan Am” from Sony Pictures TV according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The story revolves around the pilots and flight attendants of the once-iconic airline which dominated the skies. Michael Mosley (“Scrubs”) and Margot Robbie have already been cast as a pilot and stewardess respectively.
Thomas Schlamme (“The West Wing,” “Mr. Sunshine”) is on board to direct while Jack Orman (“ER”) penned the script and will executive produce.
If Ricci joins, she’ll be the latest major film actor to sign onto a small screen leading role for the new season. Maria Bello, Amanda Peet, Ethan Hawke have already closed deals while Minnie Driver and Ashley Judd are in negotiations for other shows.
