‘Carry On’: Taron Egerton Teams With ‘Black Adam’ Director Jaume Collet-Serra For Netflix Airport Thriller

Taron Egerton and director Jaume Collet-Serra are riding high right now. Egerton is coming off career-best reviews for Apple series Black Bird. Collet-Serra was just at San Diego Comic-Con alongside Dwayne Johnson hyping the upcoming release of Black Adam. The two are coming together now for a new thriller, Carry On, that’s coming to Netflix.

Penned by TJ Fixman with a recent version by Michael Green, writer on Collet-Serra’s Jungle Cruise, the Carry On story has Egerton as a TSA agent who is blackmailed by a mysterious stranger into letting a dangerous package slip through security and onto a Christmas Day flight. That was probably a mistake.

This marks the first film in a partnership deal between Netflix and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners.

Collet-Serra is squeezing this film in before things get crazy with Black Adam and a planned Jungle Cruise sequel. Perhaps he can use this time with Egerton to lure him over to the DCEU before Marvel snaps him up to play Wolverine? [Deadline]
