Tamara Tunie takes ‘Flight’

'Law & Order: SVU' thesp will co-star with Denzel Washington

Tamara Tunie (“Law & Order: SVU”) has been tapped to co-star opposite Denzel Washington in Paramount’s “Flight.”

Robert Zemeckis is helming with production starting later this month in Atlanta. Written by John Gatins, “Flight” centers on an airline pilot with substance abuse issues who steers an endangered flight to a crash-landing, saving nearly all of the passengers. Tunie plays the lead flight attendant who is interviewed during a routine investigation that leads to the unraveling of his life.

John Goodman, Don Cheadle, Kelly Reilly and Bruce Greenwood round out the cast.

Producers are Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald under their Parkes/MacDonald production banner along with Zemeckis, Steve Starkey, and Jack Rapke under their ImageMovers banner.

Tunie made her feature directorial debut in the indie romantic comedy “See You in September,” starring Estella Warren and Justin Kirk (“Weeds”). She’s repped by Paradigm.
