Joe Dante and Robert Englund are about to collaborate for the first time ever on a horror flick called AIR DISTURBANCE, we learn via a press release. That's cause for celebration for us genre fans, yes?
The duo are joined by Dylan Walsh, who of course played the title character in the ill-fated STEPFATHER remake. No other cast has been revealed yet.
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.
Ah, isn't there always a psychic girlfriend?
New Films Cinema is producing the flighty thriller, which was penned by Jeremy Sklar (FREERUNNER). Shooting is expected to commence on November 27th in L.A.
