Gerard Butler is set to star in the elevated action thriller “The Plane” from Di Bonaventura Pictures and MadRiver Pictures.
The real-time action thriller follows commercial pilot Ray Torrance (Butler) who, after a heroic job of successfully landing his storm-damaged aircraft in a war zone, finds himself caught between the agendas of multiple militias who are planning to take the plane and its passengers hostage.
As the world’s authorities and media search for the disappeared aircraft Ray must rise to the occasion and keep his passengers safe long enough for help to arrive. Charles Cumming and J.P. Davis penned the script based on the book by Cumming.
Lorenzo di Bonvaventura, Mark Vahradian, Marc Butan and Ara Keshishian will produce and shooting begins next year.
