DreamWorks' The Terminal is Ready for Boarding
Source: DreamWorks Pictures
Friday, October 10, 2003

Principal photography is underway on DreamWorks Pictures' The Terminal, under the direction of Steven Spielberg. The film stars Tom Hanks, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Stanley Tucci.

The film is being produced by Spielberg, Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald from a screenplay by Sacha Gervasi and Jeff Nathanson from a story by Andrew Niccol. Patricia Whitcher, Jason Hoffs and Niccol are serving as executive producers.

Filming began on The Terminal on October 1 in Los Angeles. The majority of the movie's interiors will be shot on a two-and-a-half story recreation of a full-size operating terminal, which has been constructed in an enormous hanger located at Palmdale's famed "aerospace alley," north of Los Angeles. Filming will be completed on location in Montreal.

The Terminal tells the story of Viktor Navorski (Hanks), a visitor to New York from Eastern Europe, whose homeland erupts in a fiery coup while he is in the air en route to America. Stranded at Kennedy Airport with a passport from nowhere, he is unauthorized to actually enter the United States and must improvise his days and nights in the terminal's international transit lounge until the war at home is over.

As the weeks and months stretch on, Viktor finds the compressed universe of the terminal to be a richly complex world of absurdity, generosity, ambition, amusement, status, serendipity and even romance with a beautiful flight attendant named Amelia (Zeta-Jones). But Viktor has long worn out his welcome with airport official Frank Dixon (Tucci), who considers him a bureaucratic glitch, a problem he cannot control but wants desperately to erase.

During his accidental exile, Viktor encounters and befriends an array of airport employees, some of whom aren't very far removed from their own assimilation to America.

The supporting cast includes Chi McBride, Diego Luna, Barry "Shabaka" Henley, Kumar Pallana, Zoe Saldana, Eddie Jones and Jude Ciccolella.
