Apple Original Films and Skydance Media’s The Family Plan is thrilled to welcome Michelle Monaghan to the cast of the upcoming film. The Gone Baby Gone and Mission: Impossible – Fallout star will co-star alongside Mark Wahlberg in the action-comedy helmed by Simon Cellan Jones (Ballers, Generation Kill, Some Voices) and written by David Coggeshall (Orphan: First Kill, Scream: The TV Series).
The plot for The Family Plan revolves around a suburban father who takes his family on the run after his past comes back to haunt him. Monaghan’s role is unconfirmed, though she’ll likely play Wahlberg’s wife.
Monaghan is no stranger to action after appearing in films like The Bourne Supremacy and several movies in the Mission: Impossible franchise, including Mission: Impossible III, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and Mission: Impossible – Fallout. She played Maggie Hart, the ex-wife of Detective Martin Hart, in the first season of HBO’s True Detective and Eva Geller in the Netflix TV series Messiah. She recently starred as identical twins Leni and Gina in the TV mini-series Echoes. The thriller explores the lives of twins who secretly swapped their lives since they were children, culminating in a double life as adults. When one of the sisters goes missing, all their careful planning gets thrown into disarray.
In addition to starring in the film, Wahlberg co-produces The Family Plan alongside Stephen Levinson from Municipal Pictures. Dana Goldberg, David Ellison, and Don Granger produce through Skydance. The Family Plan is in the pre-production process, with more casting announcements expected to drop soon.
