As reported by Deadline, Carry On will see Egerton playing Ethan Kopek, “a young TSA agent who gets blackmailed by a mysterious traveler to let a dangerous package slip through security and onto a Christmas Day flight”.
Jungle Cruise and Black Adam helmer Jaume Collet-Serra is set to direct the film, which is said to be in the vein of the filmmakers earlier action thrillers like Non-Stop and Unforgettable. The script was originally written by TJ Fixman, with Collet-Serra subsequently bringing Michael Green in to polish.
Along with Carry On, Egerton also has Apple TV+’s Tetris movie in the can, and he also remains attached to a third Kingsman movie, which was originally intended to begin filming in September but now looks like it won’t begin production until some point next year.
