A new trailer has been released for Halle Berry’s latest film, Kidnap.
The film was initially scheduled for release on October 9, 2015, but in July 2015, the studio behind it, Relativity, pushed back the date to February 26, 2016, because the company was facing a financial crisis. It was then re-scheduled once again for a May 13, 2016 premiere, before being pushed back a 3rd time to December 2, 2016, and pulled off the schedule again, to be later slated for March 10, 2017, which never happened, leaving many wondering when/if Kidnap would ever get its day to shine in front of audiences. Skip ahead to May 11, 2017, when newly-formed distribution company Aviron Pictures announced that it had picked up all U.S. release rights to “Kidnap,” setting an August 4, 2017 theatrical open.
Berry also executive produced the film with her production partner, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, via their 606 Films company, which she launched in early 2014. Spanish filmmaker Luis Prieto (Pusher) directed Kidnap, from a script penned by Knate Gwaltney.
Di Bonaventura Pictures is producer. Lotus Entertainment and Gold Star Films financed the film, as well as exec produced.
