As a man heads into space to prevent climate-controlling satellites from creating a storm of epic proportions, his brother discovers a plot to assassinate the president.



The pre-production began on July 7, 2014.[3] Dean Devlin was set to direct an sci-fi action film Geostorm for Warner Bros., which will star Gerard Butler as the lead,[4] with Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris and Andy García.[5] On August 19, Alexandra Lara joined the film's cast to play the commander of a space station and also Butler's character's love interest who helps him save the world.[6] On September 26, Katheryn Winnick was added to the cast; she would play Olivia, Butler's character's ex-wife and mother of Hannah.[7] On October 8, Eugenio Derbez was added to the cast of the film.[8]


The principal photography on the film began on October 20, 2014, in New Orleans, Louisiana,[9][10] and would last through February 10, 2015.[10] Filming began on Loyola Ave on the first day.[11] Some NASA scenes were filmed at NASA Facility in New Orleans in November 2014 and January 2015.[12][13]


The film was set a release date for March 25, 2016.[14] However, in August 2014, Warner cancelled the March 2016 date for the film, and replaced the film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with its original date.[15] On December 11, 2014, WB shifted its live-action animated film Jungle Book to 2017 and gave its previous date October 21, 2016 to Geostorm.[16] In September 2015, the studio again moved back the film to release on January 13, 2017.[17] In June 2016, the studio announced the release had been moved back to October 20, 2017.[18]
