Actress and singer Sofia Carson will extend her collaboration with Netflix. After starring in the musical comedy “Feel the Beat” (2020) and the romantic drama “Continence in Love” (2022), her new film will be completely different: an action thriller.
She joined the cast of “Carry On”, which will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (director of “Jungle Cruise” and the upcoming “Black Adam”).
In the production, he will join actors Taron Egerton (“Rocketman”), Jason Bateman (“Ozark”) and Danielle Deadwyler (“Station Eleven”).
The Netflix movie will follow a young airport security officer who is blackmailed into picking up a dangerous package on a flight on Christmas Day. Egerton will play the young agent and Bateman will play the mysterious traveler who blackmails him. Carson’s role was not revealed.
The screenplay was written by TJ Fixman (“Heroes of the Galaxy – Ratchet and Clank”) and revised by Michael Green (“Jungle Cruise”).
It is worth mentioning that this is not Collet-Serra’s first thriller involving a plane. She also directed “Stop Stops” (2014), in one of her many collaborations with actor Liam Neeson.
“Carry On” doesn’t have a release date yet.
