Plane will get a sequel called Ship starring Mike Colter

I recently watched Plane, the action thriller starring Gerard Butler and Mike Colter, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It harkened back to the action movies of the 90s and had a solid story with some great action sequences.

Spoilers ahead for Plane if you haven’t seen it,

Turns out a sequel, called Ship is in the works, and it will focus on Mike Colter’s character, who played accused murderer Louis Gaspare in the original film.

“Ship” will pick up where Gaspare’s storyline left off in “Plane” — with the legionnaire disappearing into the jungles of Jolo Island. It’s not yet clear whether Butler will return for the next film.

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.

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.

According to Variety, Discussions are now underway with writers and directors. Production is expected to begin in late 2023.

I love the idea of a sequel following a different character from the first. I could see a whole series of films going this way, with each one following a different supporting character from the previous,

Producers MadRiver Pictures, Di Bonaventura Pictures and G-BASE Productions are returning for the sequel, with director Jean-François Richet also back as an executive producer.
