Paul Dano has signed on for Augenschein-Filmproduktion’s psychological thriller “7500” which takes place entirely in the cockpit of a plane during a normal commercial flight from Berlin to Paris.
Dano plays co-pilot Tobias Ellis whose smooth flight is interrupted by screams which can be heard from the cabin. A group of young men then try to enter the cockpit armed with glass bottles and he might fight and then negotiate with his attackers for the sake of all on board his Airbus A319.
Short filmmaker Patrick Vollrath (“Everything Will Be Okay”) will helm the film while Jonas Katzenstein and Maximilian Leo will produce. Filming is scheduled to begin this summer in Germany.
