Jeff Wadlow has signed onto direct the airplane action thriller ‘Non-Stop’ for Dark Castle, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Details on the plot are still scare, but the the movie will reportedly focus on an air marshal who experiences an ordeal while flying on a domestic flight.

The ‘Never Back Down’ director discovered first-time writers John Richardson and Chris Roach, who have been hired to pen the script for ‘Non-Stop.’ Joel Silver, Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman are producing the thriller. Silver previously worked with Wadlow on ‘Hail Mary,’ a pilot the director-screenwriter created and scripted for CBS. The two also worked together on the CBS pilot ‘The Odds.’

Dark Castle, which initially was known for releasing supernatural and horror thrillers, wants to distribute ‘Non-Stop,’ as it’s aiming to develop more straight thrillers. It gained fame in the action thriller genre in February 2011 when it released ‘Unknown,’ which starred Liam Neeson and grossed $130 million worldwide against a reported $30 million budget.
