Brian Geraghty is negotiating to appear in Robert Zemeckis’ Flight, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.
Zemeckis’ first live-action film since 2000’s Cast Away, Flight stars Denzel Washington as “Whip,” a commercial airline pilot who pulls off a heroic feat of flying in a damaged plane, saving 98 lives on a flight carrying 106 people. While the world begs to embrace him as a true American Hero, the everyman struggles with this label as he is forced to hold up to the scrutiny of an investigation that brings into question his behavior the night before the doomed flight.
Written by John Gatins (Dreamer, Real Steel), the film is set to begin shooting next month in Atlanta, Georgia. Kelly Reilly is also attached as the female lead.
Geraghty, best known for his role in The Hurt Locker, would play Whip’s co-pilot who, after the incident, finds religion. The supporting cast is also likely to include Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood and Kelly Reilly.
