Joe Dante is gearing up to direct a new film called Air Disturbance. According to a press release, Dylan Walsh (Nip/Tuck, The Stepfather) and Robert Englund are set to star in the supernatural thriller written by Jeremy Sklar.
The film takes place at 35,000 feet on a transcontinental flight from Los Angeles to Toronto. Walsh plays Sam Davidson, a widowed father of two, whose wife recently committed suicide. When strange atmospheric conditions begin to affect the aircraft, Sam protects his children and his psychic girlfriend from some of the other passengers, particularly a fanatical minister (Robert Englund) who believes that the supernatural phenomena could be a sign from God.
Weird, because Dante was previously attached to another project set aboard a plane…
In 2008, the director was going to helm a film called Bat Out of Hell in which passengers aboard a red eye flight from Los Angeles to New York are threatened by a menace residing in the plane’s cargo hold. that menace being a vampire.
