Did you catch Gerard Butler and Mike Colter in Lionsgate’s Plane? Well, get ready for the action to continue in a sequel titled… No, not Plane 2. The sequel will be called Ship.
Because sure, why not?
Colter will reprise his role as accused murderer Louis Gaspare. The sequel will focus on his character, picking up where his story left off in Plane. When Gaspare boards a cargo ship from East Asia to South Africa, he realizes the ferry is being used for human trafficking. So, Gaspare embarks on a mission to take down the ship’s corrupt captain and liberate its captive passengers.
At this time, it’s not clear if Butler will also reprise his role.
Plane premiered in theaters last month, and since pulled in over $43 million at the box office worldwide. In the film, pilot Brodie Torrance (Butler) saves passengers from a lightning strike by making a risky landing on a war-torn island — only to find that surviving the landing was just the beginning. When dangerous rebels take most of the passengers hostage, the only person Torrance can count on for help is Louis Gaspare, an accused murderer who was being transported by the FBI.
Lionsgate is currently in discussions to secure writers and directors for Ship. Production plans to begin in late 2023.
