Before he goes to outer space in Christopher Nolan‘s “Interstellar,” fights for civil rights in “Selma,” and mixes it up in “A Most Violent Year,” David Oyelowo is hijacking a plane in “Default.” The movie finds the ever busy actor in thriller mode, and today we have an exclusive clip from the upcoming film.
Co-starring Katherine Moennig, Jeanine Mason, and Stephen Lord, the Simon Brand-directed picture follows an American news crew whose flight is hijacked by Somali pirates. The gang’s leader, played by Oyelowo, demands an interview with legendary journalist Frank Saltzman. When the journalist agrees, it soon becomes clear that there is much more at stake, and in the scene below, even a simple question has grave intentions behind it.
“Default” opens on October 17th. Watch below.
