William Wisher Jr. Hatches an "Escape" Scheme



"Terminator 2: Judgment Day" screenwriter William Wisher Jr. will both pen and direct 20th Century Fox 's fact-based adventure "Escape of the Pacific Clipper."

Busily penning "Pilgrim" apparently does not make William Wisher Jr. throw out chance to work on another stint. Variety has brought in report informing that the "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" scribe is set to both write and produce "Escape of the Pacific Clipper" for 20th Century Fox.

A fact-based adventure about a race to get a Boeing B-314 back from New Zealand after the attack on Pearl Harbor in WWII, the movie revolves around a ragtag crew of 11 who gets ordered to take the aircraft to Hong Kong. Upon finding out that the region has been overrun by the Japanese, the crew is assigned by Pan Am chief Juan Trippe to fly a secret mission around the world yet the task soon becomes public, leading the crew to race against the Japanese and Nazis to make it home.

No word yet on director and cast lineup, but it is learned that Charles A. Chiara will accompany Wisher Jr. on the producer's chair. The man previously served as the associate producer on both "Suicide Kings" and "Lost & Found" while once taking position as a post-production supervisor in a 2006 episode of TV series "Cracking Up."
