Preview:

  • Zachary Levi will star in a new thriller called ‘Free Fall’.
  • Stunt coordinator Zöe Bell is directing.
  • The movie will see a father and daughter trapped after an accident.

While Zachary Levi has spent the last few years flying around as the titular comical DC hero ‘Shazam!’, he’ll be worried about gravity in a different way for a new thriller.

He’s now attached to the lead role in ‘Free Fall’, which will focus on a rock climber who gets into trouble many feet in the air.

It’s just the latest movie to focus on daring climbers who end up trapped, following 2002 thriller ‘Fall’, which saw two young women trapped on a radio tower. We doubt there will be quite as many strange/dangerous interactions with vultures in this one, though we’d like to see the birds cross over to this new movie.

Who is making ‘Free Fall’?

The new film will mark the directorial debut of Zöe Bell, a stunt performer and coordinator who got her start on the likes of ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’.

She spun an extensive TV stunt and acting resume into movie work, including a long stint on Quentin Tarantino’s output such as ‘The Hateful Eight,’ ‘Django Unchained,’ ‘Kill Bill,’ ‘Inglourious Basterds’, ‘Death Proof’ and ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.’

‘Free Fall’ would mark her directorial debut after acting as Second Unit Director on some of her movies.

The movie, written by Sean Finegan and Gregg Maxwell Parker, tells the story of a father’s attempt to reconcile with his estranged daughter on a rock-climbing trip that turns deadly as an accident leaves them stranded hundreds of feet in the air.

Bell aims to have the movie shooting later this year in New Zealand.

‘Free Fall’: the filmmakers speak

Here’s what Bell said about the new movie in a statement:

“This script is the perfect combo of heartfelt and heart-stopping. Between the producing team, the cast and the New Zealand crews, words don’t do justice to how thrilled I am to be bringing this film home.”

And here’s executive producers Navid McIlhargey and Erik Olsen:

“We’re very excited to embark on this film with so many longtime friends. Sean wrote the script after working with us as an executive on the Warner Bros. lot. And that’s where we met Zac while he was shooting ‘Chuck’ on Stage 4 and befriended Zoë after seeing her brilliant stunt work in ‘Kill Bill.’”

When will ‘Free Fall’ be in theaters?

‘Free Fall’, as in indie production, hasn’t kicked off shooting yet and doesn’t have a confirmed release date.
