Christina Ricci is in negotiations to star in ABC's 1960s-set drama Pan Am, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

From Sony Pictures TV, the nighttime soap revolves around pilots and flight attendants (or stewardesses, as they were known then) at the once-dominant airline.

ER executive producer/writer Jack Orman wrote the script. Thomas Schlamme is on board to direct. Australian actress Margot Robbie has already been cast as one of Pan Am's flight attendants, while Michael Mosley has locked to play one of the pilots.
