Sarsgaard to book 'Flight Plan'
Peter Sarsgaard is in negotiations to board Touchstone Pictures/Imagine
Entertainment's "Flight Plan" opposite Jodie Foster. Robert Schwentke is
helming the Brian Grazer-produced project, with lensing scheduled for
September. Described as a Hitchcockian thriller, "Flight Plan" follows
the in-air plight of a woman whose daughter mysteriously disappears
while on board a passenger jet. Sarsgaard has a lead part of a passenger
sitting near Foster who tries to help her get the situation under control.
"Flight Plan" is based on a pitch from Peter Dowling with Billy Ray penning
the current draft. Robert DiNozzi is executive producing. At Disney,
Brigham Taylor and Louanne Brickhouse are shepherding. Jim Whitaker
is overseeing for Imagine. After noteworthy performances in independent
features including Fox Searchlight Pictures' "Boys Don't Cry" and Lions Gate
Films' "Shattered Glass," Sarsgaard has been drafted for big parts in studio
fare. He recently completed work opposite Kate Hudson in Universal
Pictures' "Skeleton Key." Sarsgaard is repped by CAA, MJ Management and
attorney Jodi Peikoff. He next stars in Zach Braff's directorial debut, "Garden
State," for Searchlight and Miramax Films, and Searchlight's "Kinsey" for Bill
Condon. (Chris Gardner)
