DEAN CAIN, ANTHONY MICHAEL HALL, LEA THOMPSON, SUNNY MABREY, ERNIE HUDSON, TRACEY GOLD, WILLIAM FORSYTHE AND RICHARD ROUNDTREE STAR IN A LIFE-AND-DEATH STRUGGLE AT 30,000 FEET

'FINAL APPROACH'

FEAR REACHES NEW HEIGHTS THIS NOVEMBER!

Heart-Stopping Thriller Revives Big-Budget, All-Star Disaster Genre

Dean Cain ("10.5: Apocalypse") and Anthony Michael Hall ("The Dead Zone") head an all-star cast which includes Ernie Hudson ("Miss Congeniality"), Lea Thompson ("Jane Doe"), Sunny Mabrey ("Snakes on a Plane"), Richard Roundtree ("Heroes"), William Forsythe ("The Rock") and Tracey Gold ("Growing Pains") in "Final Approach," a three-hour Hallmark Original Movie Event which premieres November 2007.

With its big-budget and all-star cast, "Final Approach" is sure to revive the disaster genre and is reminiscent of classics like "Airport," "The Poseidon Adventure," "Earthquake" and "Dante's Peak."

"Final Approach" is the explosive story centered on a group of militant American terrorists aboard a doomed airliner � with the only hope of salvation for the passengers on board and thousands on the ground being an embittered ex-FBI agent who happens to be on the plane.

A year after leading a botched raid on a compound that resulted in the capture of cult leader Silas Jansen (Forsythe) but lead to several unnecessary deaths, former FBI agent Jack Bender (Cain) is returning home after another failed job interview.

But once his plane is in the air, it is commandeered by Greg Gilliad (Hall), who is demanding that Jansen be released from prison. Jack quietly recruits passengers to help, including a flight attendant (Mabrey) and television reporter (Gold). Meanwhile, efforts on the ground are being marshaled by ATF agent Lorenzo Dawson (Hudson) and FAA officials Gary Markash (Roundtree) and Alicia Bender (Thompson), Jack's wife.

The stage is set. The clock is ticking. With chaos escalating, Flight 732 is making its deadly, final approach.

"Final Approach" is an RHI Entertainment presentation of a Silverstar Limited Production, in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Armand Mastroianni directed from a script by Adam Armus & Kay Foster. Executive producers are Robert Halmi, Jr. and Larry Levinson. Co-executive producers are Nick Lombardo and Michael Moran. The film was produced by Kyle Clark and James Wilberger.
