Helmed by Patrick Vollrath in his directorial feature-length film debut, 7500 — a reference to the emergency code for an airplane hijacking — sees JGL as Tobias Ellis, a young co-pilot getting ready for a regular flight. Prepared to fly from Berlin to Paris with his girlfriend, the mother of his child and flight stewardess Göcke (Aylin Tezel), their flight takes a turn for the worse when they’re attacked by terrorists:
“It looks like a routine day at work for Tobias, a soft-spoken young American co-pilot on a flight from Berlin to Paris as he runs through the preflight checklist with Michael, the pilot, and chats with Gökce, his flight-attendant girlfriend. But shortly after takeoff, terrorists armed with makeshift knives suddenly storm the cockpit, seriously wounding Michael and slashing Tobias’ arm. Temporarily managing to fend off the attackers, a terrified Tobias contacts ground control to plan an emergency landing. But when the hijackers kill a passenger and threaten to murder more innocent people if he doesn’t let them back into the cockpit, this ordinary man faces an excruciating test.”
