Life on the Line — Promo Trailer


added: Mon, Feb 22nd '16

If you don't think John Travolta has the chops to play a southern electric utility worker with a big, bushy goatee, then "yooou're a damn fool!"

In the trailer for the action drama "Life on the Line," Travolta plays the grizzled captain of a tight-knit crew of blue-collar electrical linemen who are responsible for cutting and repairing damaged power lines. We're told in the preview that the profession is ranked as "the fourth most dangerous occupation in the world." An unfortunate statistic that makes Travolta's character quite irritable, especially when it comes to a newly hired member of his team (played by Devon Sawa) who happens to be dating his pregnant niece (Kate Bosworth).

When a powerful and deadly storm suddenly knocks down utility lines, cutting electricity in all the major parts of the state, Travolta and his men are called in to make repairs. To survive the night, the men must work together as one whole unit, but "any little distraction" could cause injury or even death.

Directed by production designer-turned-helmer David Hackl (Into the Grizzly Maze, Saw V), "Life on the Line" co-stars Sharon Stone, Gil Bellows, Julie Benz, and Ryan Robbins. The film will be coming out later this year.

"Life on the Line" follows the lives of a crew of eccentric and courageous power line workers who do the extremely dangerous work of fixing the crumbling electrical grid. John Travolta stars as Beau, a salt of the earth man who blames himself for his brother's death and raises Bailey, his orphaned niece (Kate Bosworth). His worlds collide when Bailey's handsome lover (Devon Sawa) joins his linemen crew on the eve of a massive and deadly storm that threatens to rip their lives apart.
