Midair (Bee Holder)
Aaron Eckhart (Sully, The First Lady) will star in a new airborn thriller produced by Bee Holder. According to press materials, the plot follows “a down-on-his-luck cargo pilot just wants to get home for his son’s birthday. But his plans for a reunion are cut short when he’s stalked, midair, by a mysterious plane whose pilot forces him to overcome a series of death-defying obstacles along the ‘spider route’ an off-radar airspace trafficked by the world’s most dangerous smugglers.” Magnus Martens (SAS: Red Notice), is directing from a script penned by George Mahaffey (Chief of Station, Heatseekers). Filming begins in Los Angeles on July 3.
