66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Press Room

Relativity scored a second deal with Lotus Entertainment to produce a thriller titled Kidnap, starring Halle Berry as a mother who will stop at nothing to rescue her kidnapped son. The film will be directed by Luis Prieto and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura’s Di Bonaventura Pictures. This follows Relativity’s movie deal for Woman In Black 2, which will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival this week.

“Lorenzo is renowned producer in the blockbuster action world, and we’re very excited to be woking on such an exciting high-concept project with him,” said Lotus chiefs Bill Johnson and Jim Seibel. “We look forward to seeing him join forces with the incredible talent of Halle Berry and Luis Prieto on a project that is sure to appeal to audiences worldwide.”

Lotus Entertainment will be selling the project to foreign buyers at the Cannes Film Market. Other movies in Relativity’s action theme include 3 Days to Kill and The November Man, with The Disappointments Room directed by DJ Caruso just underway.
