March 28, 2012
Opening on August 31, the film is directed by Takashi Shimizu, and co-stars Jamie Chung, Nicky Whelan, Amy Smart, Leslie Bibb, Ryan Kwanten, Scout Taylor-Compton, Johnathon Schaech, and Christian Serratos.
“Flight 7500″ stars Amy Smart and Ryan Kwanten as a honeymooning couple on a flight from Los Angeles to Tokyo, Japan. The film is a “claustrophobic” thriller set on a transpacific airliner where the passengers encounter what appears to be a supernatural force
For Ferrera, this is his first horror film, but the New Jersey native sees it as more than just horror.
Jerry Ferrera: ‘7500’ is a psychological thriller with the director from ‘The Grudge,’ who is really good at scaring and creeping out audiences. It was a lot of fun to do. It all takes place on a plane. When I read the script I thought it was going to be just a horror film and people’s heads were to be going to chopped off and stuff like that, but it’s not like that at all. It stays psychological like ‘The Grudge.’
Is it scary?
JF: Yes, there are a lot of scares, but it has some of the best cliffhanger, unexpected twist and that’s sort of typical in that of film. Here, they did a smart job and that’s best way to describe this film. I’m one of the passengers in the movie but there’s like six stories going on this plane.
