Dept. of Chats and Confabs


Apple TV Plus’ latest family action comedy, The Family Plan, is more than what the trailer implies. Mark Wahlberg is Dan Morgan, a former assassin who, while in hiding, has built a life as a mild mannered car salesman. His tranquil home life is shaken up once his identity is uncovered by a former employer, and to save his family, Dan Morgan has to fight his way across the country while trying to keep his past a secret. In this Goggler Exclusive, we got the chance to sit down with Simon Cellan Jones to talk working with Mark Wahlberg (again), the movie’s big takeaway, and crafting that final reveal.

The Family Plan is now streaming on Apple TV Plus.

Dan Morgan loves his quiet suburban life as a devoted husband, father of three and successful car salesman. But that’s only half the story. Decades earlier, he was an elite government assassin tasked with eliminating the world’s deadliest threats. When enemies from his past track him down, Dan packs his unsuspecting wife, angsty teen daughter, pro-gamer teen son and adorable 10-month-old baby into their minivan and takes off on an impromptu cross-country road trip to Las Vegas. Determined to protect his family — while treating them to the vacation of a lifetime — Dan must put his long-dormant skills into action, without revealing his true identity.

The Family Plan was directed by Simon Cellan Jones and stars Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Monaghan, Zoe Colletti, Van Crosby, Saïd Taghmaoui, Maggie Q, and Ciarán Hinds.
