Inspired by actual events, Aftermath is a story of two strangers (Schwarzenegger and Scoot McNairy of Argo and Gone Girl fame) whose lives become inextricably bound together after a devastating plane crash.

Known for his power-packed action roles, Schwarzenegger will be seen in a whole new avatar in Aftermath, directed by Elliott Lester. In the movie, Schwarzenegger plays an old father who loses his family in a plane crash.

Lester feels the character of Schwarzenegger was fit for the actor. "At first, you associate Arnold with a certain kind of film, because he is a man who's grossed 4 billion dollars and had a 35-year career and is the highest paid star in the world, but then I open page one, and I think this is very unusual, and by the end of page 110, you'd gone on this incredible journey with this collection of characters, and at the end of it, there was no one else I felt could play the character of Roman apart from Arnold."

The revenge thriller is based on the real-life crash of Bashkirian Airlines Flight 2937 and DHL Flight 611. The incident occurred on July 1, 2002, when the two planes crashed into each other in midair over the town of Uberlingen, Germany.
