Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to star in “478”, the Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films financed drama.

Schwarzenegger has been eyeing the project for months and will a man whose wife and child die in a plane crash, a tragedy caused by an air traffic controller’s screw-up. The film will be dark in tone with the air traffic controller vilified for his mistake, he is placed into protective custody but Schwarzenegger’s character cannot let it go and will stop at nothing to seek vengeance.

Elliott Lester best known from HBO’s Emmy-nominated “Nightingale” will direct. Javier Guillon (“Invader,” “Enemy”) wrote the script, with  Darren Aronofsky, Scott Franklin, Eric Watson, Randall Emmett, George Furla and Peter Dealbert producing.

Filming is set to kick off mid-December in Ohio.
