Taron Egerton has joined the cast on Netflix’s collaboration with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin, action thriller ‘Carry On.’

The story follows Ethan Kopek, a young TSA agent who gets blackmailed by a mysterious traveller to let a dangerous package slip through security and onto a Christmas Day flight. At a time when the friendly skies have never seemed less inviting, the movie could make air travel even less appealing.

‘Jungle Cruise’ filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra will direct the feature. Dylan Clark Productions will produce the film. TJ Fixman has penned the script, with additional writing by Michael Green. Executive producers include Holly Bario, Amblin’s president of production, who will oversee the project on behalf of the studio. Brian Williams via Dylan Clark Productions, Scott Greenberg and Seth William Meier also executive produce the film.

Collet-Serra has already paired up again with Dwayne Johnson for ‘Black Adam,’ a DC comics adaptation. His other credits include ‘The Shallows’ and ‘Non-Stop.’
