Relativity Studios has picked up US rights to Lotus Entertainment and Gold Star Films’ upcoming Halle Berry thriller.
Luis Prieto is attached to direct Kidnap in late autumn based on Knate Gwaltney’s debut screenplay about a mother who will stop at nothing to rescue her abducted son.
Di Bonaventura Pictures’ Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Erik Howsam are producing. The executive producer roster includes Joey Tufaro and Colin Bates, Lotus’ Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel, DJ Gugenheim and Ara Keshishian and Berry and her 606 Films producing partner Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas.
CAA packaged the project and represented US rights. Lotus handles international sales.
The Kidnap deal follows Relativity’s buy earlier in the week for Hammer’s The Women In Black: Angel Of Death.
