Kelsey Grammer, Phyllis Logan to star in plane crash thriller “No Way Up”
Frasier star Kelsey Grammer and Phyllis Logan, best known for portraying the beloved Mrs Hughes (and later Mrs Carson) in Downton Abbey, are set to star in plane crash thriller No Way Up, with Altitude Film Entertainment both producing and handling worldwide sales.
The project, which will begin shooting in Malta in spring 2022, will be introduced to buyers at next week’s virtual American Film Market , reports Variety.
An official description for the film directed by Claudio Fäh from a screenplay by Andy Mayson, calls the pic a “rollercoaster combination of disaster movie and survival thriller, as characters from very different backgrounds are thrown together when the plane they’re travelling on crashes into the Pacific Ocean.”
When the airliner comes to rest perilously close to the edge of a ravine with the surviving passengers and crew trapped in an air pocket, a nightmare fight for survival ensues with the air supply running out and dangers creeping in from all sides.
