Gerard Butler's Upcoming Movie 'The Plane' Loses Lionsgate as Studio For This Reason

Lionsgate has decided to withdraw plans from distributing the new thriller The Plane starring Gerard Butler.

The studio exited the movie after producers were unable to obtain production insurance for the film in order to cover COVID-19 expenses, Deadline reports.

Lionsgate boarded the film last year at the American Film Market (AFM), picking up distribution rights for territories that included North America, Latin America, the U.K., and India.

Here’s the movie’s synopsis: “The Plane will star Butler as commercial pilot Ray Torrance, who, after a heroic job of successfully landing his storm-damaged aircraft in a war zone, finds himself caught between the agendas of multiple militias that are planning to take the plane and its passengers hostage.”

Filming was scheduled to start last month in Malaysia, but with rising COVID-19 outbreaks, producers were planning on movie production to the Dominican Republic or the United States. However, they were never able to lock down a location.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Gerard Butler will star in another action thriller film soon. Read more about it here…
