David Guggenheim, who wrote last winter’s successful “Safe House,” is back in business with the studio that produced that movie and was no doubt very pleased by its box office returns. According to Deadline, Universal Pictures won a bidding war for the script with several other studios, including Warner Brothers and DreamWorks.
Here’s the plot description:
When Air Force One crashes into the Atlantic ocean, the black box recording reveals the accident was a result of pilot and mechanical error. Some three years later, the journalist husband of one of the aides killed in the crash receives an anonymous recording of the real black box, which proves the plane was actually attacked. He is forced to go underground to unravel a larger conspiracy against the US, while simultaneously discovering his wife was leading a secret double life.
So if Air Force One crashes, does that mean that the president is killed, too? Well, I think we know what movie will not be the in-flight entertainment on the real Air Force One anytime soon.
