How to Watch Plane?: Directed by French screenwriter and director Jean-François Richet, Plane is a 2023’s American action thriller starring Gerard Butler. The film is shot in Puerto Rico and follows the life of a commercial pilot named Brodie Torrance, played by Butler. Brodie successfully does an emergency landing during his flight when his plane sustains critical damage during a storm.
However, things soon turn ugly when he discovers that the island on which he landed the plane is Jolo – a secluded area ruled by the Phillippines’ anti-government militias. When one of the militant leaders finds the passengers, they take all of them, hostage. The army is armed and is not friendly toward anyone. They hope to earn a heavy ransom from each of the families.
While the International rescue team finds it challenging to locate the plane, Brodie decides to team up with a convicted murderer who is also one of his passengers. They plan on fighting the armed militants to save the passengers and find their way out of the dangerous island.
The film’s plot is derived from an original pitch from a novelist named Charles Cumming. In 2016, MadRiver Pictures acquired the film’s rights and announced Marc Butan and Di Bonaventura Pictures’ Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian as producers. However, in 2019 Lionsgate Films acquired the distribution rights, and the film’s production began around August 2021.
