Flight Plan: According to The Hollywood Reporter, 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. The film is based on a pitch from Peter Dowling with Billy Ray penning the current draft.
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.
