It is being described as an action movie about an international heist crew recruited to prevent a terrorist attack mid-flight. Hart is playing master thief who gets involved in the heist after being convinced by his ex-girlfriend.

Lift is executive produced by Gray, Brent O’Connor, and Patricia Braga, with Simon Kinberg and Audrey Chon for Genre Pictures, Matt Reeves and Adam Kassan for 6th & Idaho, and Hart and Brian Smiley for HartBeat Productions serving as producers.
