Halle Berry is no stranger to kicking ass, having played the role of Storm in four X-Men movies. In the upcoming thriller “Kidnap,” Berry plays a loving mother who takes her son to an amusement park but quickly has to shift into survival mode after witnessing him being kidnapped right in front of her eyes. The movie looks to be high-octane thrill ride with several car-chases that don’t end well.
Based on the creative talent behind the picture, “Kidnap” should not disappoint in the action category. Director Luis Prieto previously directed the 2012 crime-thriller “Pusher” about London drug dealer whose life spins out of control, and screenwriter Knate Lee is a film and TV producer who has worked on the “Jackass” show and movies and co-wrote the script for director Josh Boone’s upcoming “X-Men: The New Mutants.”
“Kidnap’s” producers include Lorenzo di Bonaventura, and the film was executive produced by Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel, Ara Keshishian, D.J. Gugenheim, Tucker Tooley, Ryan Kavanaugh, Doris Pfardrescher, Mike Drake, Todd Trosclair, Knate Gwaltney and Colin Bates. Kavanaugh’s Relativity Media is handling theatrical distribution in the U.S.
