Brian Geraghty (The Hurt Locker) has joined Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood, and Kelly Reilly in Robert Zemeckis’ Flight. Washington plays “an alcoholic and drug-addicted pilot whose plane engine malfunctions, forcing him to rescue the aircraft and its passengers, becoming a hero in the process. When the FAA investigates and finds evidence of drug abuse, it tries to sweep the evidence to the side to help preserve the image of the captain, who is trying to change the course of his life.” There’s no word yet on who Cheadle, Greenwood, and Reilly are playing, but THR reports that Geraghty will play “Washington’s co-pilot, a man who finds religion after the crash.” Flight is set to begin shooting in Atlanta next month. It will be Zemeckis’ first non-motion-capture movie in over a decade.
Geraghty is briefly in the comedy Ten Year where he participates in a good running joke with Aubrey Plaza who plays his character’s wife. He also recently wrapped on the thriller ATM with Alice Eve (She’s Out of My League) and Josh Peck (The Wackness). Geraghty’s also set to co-star in Aubrey Hepburn’s Neck and Refuge with Krysten Ritter, and he’s also signed on for the comedy Gay Dude.
