Ship: Mike Colter to Lead Sequel to Action Thriller Movie Plane

According to Variety, Luke Cage star Mike Colter has officially signed on for the leading role in Ship, the upcoming sequel to the action thriller movie Plane.

The project comes after a month since the Gerard Butler-led film made its theatrical release, which earned a worldwide gross of around $43 million. It’s still unclear if Butler would also be reprising his role as commercial pilot Brodie Torrance, but his production company G-Base is attached to produce the sequel.

Ship will feature Colter returning as Louis Gaspare, who was first introduced in the original film as an accused murderer who helped Butler’s Brodie save the passengers from pirates. The sequel will continue Gaspare’s storyline after escaping into the jungles of Jolo Island in the Philippines.

“Following a high-octane showdown with the local militia on Jolo’s shores, Gaspare manages to commandeer a fishing boat and escape the Philippines. But he’s not out of the woods yet: the media circus surrounding Flight 119 has elevated his public profile, making him the subject of an international manhunt. Hoping to stay under the radar and get far away from his last known location, Gaspare hops aboard a cargo ship in East Asia that’s bound for South Africa. But as he settles in for a long voyage, the stowaway discovers that the ocean vessel is transporting more than goods — it’s also being used as a ferry for a human trafficking ring,” reads the synopsis for the sequel.

“A strong moral code won’t allow Gaspare to simply stand by, so he once again puts his own freedom on hold. Together with the ship’s second mate, a last-minute addition to the crew who was unaware of its illicit activities, and a passenger with military experience and a bone to pick, Gaspare embarks on a mission to take down the ship’s corrupt captain, keep its innocent passengers safe, and liberate its captives.”

Ship will be executive produced by director Jean-François Richet. It hails from MadRiver Pictures, Di Bonaventura Pictures, and G-BASE Productions. Production is expected to begin later this year, as the search for potential writers and directors continues.
