Next up for actress Halle Berry is another kidnapping thriller (see her last feature film, “The Call”), titled, simply, “Kidnap.”
We first alerted you to the project when it was announced at the Cannes Film Market (Marche du Film) earlier this year, where it was being shopped, repped by Lotus Entertainment.
Skip ahead 4 months to today’s news that distribution rights to the film have been acquired by Relativity Studios – the company’s second pick up this week, along with “Woman in Black 2.”
Spanish filmmaker Luis Prieto (“Pusher”) is attached to direct, from a script penned by Knate Gwaltney.
Principal photography is set to begin this fall, with Di Bonaventura Pictures producing, and Lotus Entertainment and Gold Star Films financing the film, as well as exec producing.
Looking ahead, Relativity Studios will release Gina Prince Bythewood’s drama “Beyond the Lights” in November, “Hector and the Search for Happiness” (in theaters September 19, 2014), and author Nicholas Sparks’ “The Best of Me” (in theaters October 17, 2014).
