Lionsgate has released the following synopsis for ‘Altitude’:
Gretchen Blair (Denise Richards) is a headstrong FBI agent who goes rogue on a hostage negotiation and is sent packing to a desk job back in DC. By a stroke of luck, she’s upgraded to business class on her flight—but as soon as the plane takes off, her seatmate, Terry (Kirk Barker), offers her millions of dollars if she can get him off the plane alive. As his ex-partners, Sharpe, Rawbones and Sadie (Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Liddell and Greer Grammar) stage a brutal hijacking, Gretchen finds herself in the fight of her life—choosing sides between two factions of a criminal gang and trying to keep the plane from going down.
