In information that I’d truthfully name an April Fools joke if it got here out any nearer to April, Deadline is reporting that Mike Colter is about to star within the film Ship, which is able to observe his character from Aircraft, escaped convict Louis Gaspare. The brand new movie is about to choose up instantly following the occasions of Aircraft, with Colter’s character escaping the Philippines by ship, and discovering a brand new state of affairs to be handled.
