Yoson An, one of the standouts in 2020’s Mulan, is joining Gerald Butler’s upcoming film. The Hollywood Reporter has broken the story that An will join Butler in The Plane, from director Jean-François Richet.
The Plane follows Brodie Torrance (Butler), who, after a heroic job of successfully landing his storm-damaged aircraft in hostile territory, finds himself threatened by militant pirates who want to take the plane and its passengers hostage. As the world searches for the disappeared aircraft, Brodie must rise to the occasion and keep his passengers safe until help arrives.
Yoson An will play Dele, the first officer on the ill-fated flight. He’ll join Butler and other cast members, including Mike Colter, Daniella Pineda, and Kelly Gale.
An is an up-and-coming actor who appeared in The Meg and Mortal Engines before landing a significant role in Disney’s live-action Mulan film. This film will mark his first project since that gig.
The Plane is helmed by Jean-François Richet from a script by Charles Cumming, JP Davis, and Matt Cook. The film is based on a novel by Charles Cumming and will begin filming this month in Puerto Rico.
