Robert Englund, Dylan Walsh and Genre Great Joe Dante Team Up for 'Air Disturbance'


Slasher extraordinaire Robert Englund and maniacal stepfather Dylan Walsh have been tapped to star in director Joe Dante’s new screamer, Air Disturbance.

From the press release: "The horrific action takes place at 35,000 feet on a transcontinental flight from Los Angeles to Toronto.  Dylan Walsh plays Sam Davidson, a widowed father of two, whose wife recently committed suicide.  When strange atmospheric conditions begin to affect the aircraft, Sam protects his children and his psychic girlfriend from some of the other passengers, particularly a fanatical minister (Robert Englund) who believes that the supernatural phenomena could be a sign from God."

Jeremy Sklar, who wrote Freerunner—yeah, I haven’t seen it either, but it’s sort of like a parkour version of Death Race—will be writing the script.

Dante’s most recent project The Hole 3D was released in select cities and is on VOD. The director told FEARnet that he’s working on several projects, but he thought his next project would be an anthology.

“Well, I’m working on a lot of things at once, which you have to do in this business because you never know which one of them is going to happen next. But the one that looks likely to go next is  a French film called Paris, I’ll Kill You. It is an eight-director horror anthology film. That is supposed to be shot in February. I am doing one of those segments,” he said.
