Let’s face it, even at his age, Arnie is not the sort of chap you want to piss off, and he’s certainly not someone you’d want hunting you for revenge. However, that’s exactly what some poor airplane pilot has to deal with in a new thriller called 478.
Deadline reported the news that this is the film Arnie will head to after Terminator: Genisys, but the film will be more drama than action, with Arnie displaying the acting skills he brings to zombie drama Maggie. The film has been written by Javier Gullon, the man who wrote the screenplay for Denis Villeneuve’s terrific mind fuck film, Enemy.
In 478, Schwarzenegger plays a man whose wife and child die in a plane crash. The tragedy was caused by an air traffic controller’s screw-up. The air traffic controller is vilified for his mistake and placed into protective custody. Schwarzenegger cannot let it go, and is determined to seek vengeance. Though is sounds like a standard revenge film, I’m told it isn’t. It is much more subtle than that — a real character piece more than an action film and gives Schwarzenegger a chance to show the chops he displayed on Maggie.
Darren Aronofsky’s Protozoa is producing and the aim is to shoot in the fall. No director has been named yet.
