As someone with a severe fear of the dentist, I’d take a pass on absolutely anything that would have me in a dentist’s office for a stretch of time. (Or for five minutes for that matter.) Jaume Collet-Serra, however, opts for the exact opposite approach. Rather than assuage his fear of flying by avoiding airplanes altogether, he signs up for a gig that has him working in one for months.
Collet-Serra reunites with his Unknown star Liam Neeson for Non-Stop, a movie that hones in on an air marshal aboard a transatlantic flight to London. Once airborne, the marshal starts receiving text messages from an unknown source, threatening to kill a passenger every 20 minutes unless he’s given $150 million. With Non-Stop making its way into theaters on Friday, February 28th, Collider got the opportunity to talk to Collet-Serra about channeling his fear into his characters, designing his airplane set to match his shot selection and the enjoyment he gets from breaking cameras. Hit the jump to catch all the details on Non-Stop as well as Run All Night, Here There Be Monsters, Akira and more.
