Steven Spielberg’s 1971 classic road suspense thriller, Duel, and Jonathan Mostow’s 1997 Kurt Russell-led Breakdown are now the ideal composition and tone set for David Loughery’s new airborne thriller, Blackwing. Voltage Pictures is backing the picture adding to its production slate with Voltage chief Nicolas Chartier producing with Dominic Rustam, and president and COO Jonathan Deckter exec producer with Brad Kaplan and Loughery.
As Screendaily reports, Blackwing “centres on a pilot who finds himself trapped in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with an airborne serial killer.” A cast remains to be announced for which they’ll star from Loughery’s script.
“Blackwing is the kind of intelligent, gripping thriller that captivates audiences,” said Deckter. “We’re thrilled to kick off another incredible year for Voltage by adding this smart, highly commercial project to our 2019 production slate.”
Voltage’s slate also lists Sundance entry Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile, and Jessica Chastain’s recent action thriller, Eve, which is in post-production. Loughery wrote and exec producer Deon Taylor’s new psychological thriller, The Intruder, which stars Michael Ealy, Dennis Quaid and Meagan Good, and releases on May 3 from Screen Gems.
