Directed by Elliott Lester (Blitz), the film sees Arnie as “Viktor, a man whose wife and child die in a plane crash. When Schwarzenegger’s character learns that the tragedy was caused by an air traffic controller’s mistake, he is determined to seek revenge.”

Just when Arnold Schwarzenegger broke away from tradition to offer a heartfelt and emotionally raw performance in last year’s Maggie, the Austrian Oak has been typecast into a role that wouldn’t look out of place on his résumé from 20 years ago.
For Elliott Lester’s (Blitz, Love is the Drug) old-school revenge thriller 478, Schwarzenegger plays a man hellbent for revenge after discovering that the plane crash that killed his doting wife and child was caused by human error – specifically, the human error of one very unfortunate air traffic controller. And so, tossing common sense out the window, Schwarzenegger’s lumbering widower sets about avenging the death of his nearest and dearest. Surely there’s more to it than that, no?
No word yet on who will portray the hapless air traffic controller, though Variety brings word today that Kevin Zegers has boarded the thriller in an unspecified role. »
