It’s tough enough to film even a fraction of a movie in an airplane. Director Jaume Collet-Serra and producer Joel Silver, however, opted to take on a script that would have them shooting on a plane for 99% of the movie, and with some intense combat sequences taking place in the close quarters nonetheless.
In their fourth collaboration (following House of Wax, Orphan, and Unknown), Collet-Serra and Silver bring us Non-Stop, the story of Bill Marks (Liam Neeson), an air marshal who starts getting threatening text messages while his flight is in the middle of the trip from New York to London, completely isolated over the Atlantic Ocean. With Non-Stop due in theaters on Friday, February 28th, Collet-Serra and Silver hit the New York press circuit to sit down for a press conference. Catch what they had to say about reuniting with Neeson, what it took to shoot a fight scene in the airplane bathroom, the challenge of integrating modern technology into the film, and more after the jump.
