Halle Berry will star in the upcoming low-budget feature film Kidnap alongside Liam Neeson. The film is directed by Luis Prieto, who previously directed 2012’s Pusher remake, and revolves around a mother (Berry) who is forced to pursue a car driven by those who have kidnapped her innocent son. The kidnapping takes place while Berry and her child play a game of Marco Polo.
It has been quite some time since we have seen Berry consistently on the big screen; however, based on the projects that she currently has lined up, it appears that she will be gracing us with the resurgence of her on screen presence. In addition to Kidnap, Berry is attached to star in Kings, directed by Turkish-French director Deniz Gamze Ergüven (Mustang). Kings revolves around the 1992 riots that took place in South Central Los Angeles after a jury acquitted four LA police officers for the use of excessive force in the beating of Rodney King. Berry is also in the process of shooting Kingsman: The Golden Circle starring Julianne Moore and Channing Tatum which is set to be released in June 2017, and is set to star in Adrian Lyne’s feature film, Silence alongside Michael Douglas.
Kidnap opens in theaters on December 2nd. Check out the film’s trailer above!
