Joe Dante to Helm New Line Cinema's AIR DISTURBANCE
New Films Cinema will start filming on November 27 in Los Angeles for the horror-thriller AIR DISTURBANCE, which will be directed by Joe Dante (Gremlins, Small Soldiers) and stars Dylan Walsh (The Stepfather, The Lake House) and Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Freddy vs. Jason). The female lead has yet to be cast.
Nesim Hason (Dead Awake, Chain Letter) produces with Tom Malloy (The Alphabet Killer, Sprawl) and the film will be distributed by Hason's New Films International. Jeremy Sklar (Freerunner) wrote the script.
In Air Disturbance, the horrific action takes place at 35,000 feet on a transcontinental flight from Los Angeles to Toronto. Dylan 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.
