Gerard Butler has signed on to “The Plane,” a film based on an original idea by novelist Charles Cumming. The story follows a commercial pilot facing the worst possible situation: When his small aircraft is ravaged by a storm, he’s forced to land in the middle of a war zone. After it becomes clear that the plane has touched down in enemy territory, the pilot faces off against a local militia in a tense battle to ensure not just his own survival, but the safety of his passengers. Butler is the only actor currently on board for the project, which will be directed by Jean-François Richet and written by J.P. Davis. Additional talent will be added by Engine Casting as production gears up this month in Puerto Rico.
