Samuel L Jackson will join New Line Cinema’s Flight 121, according to Variety. David Ellis (Cellular) will be directing the project, scheduled to start in May. The screenplay was originally written by John Heffernan and most recently rewritten by Sebastian Gutierrez (Gothika).
Jackson plays an FBI agent transporting a witness for a major criminal case on an airplane. Trouble is that the plane is full of snakes.
No, really, snakes. Not terrorists, not bombs, none of those ‘cliche’ plot devices. Snakes.
