Deadline is reporting that Aviron Pictures has picked up the thriller ‘Kidnap,’ starring Academy Award winner Halle Berry, from Relativity Studios and will release it in theaters on August 4.
The new company was started by David Dinerstein, who founded Paramount Classics and was the architect of Fox Searchlight. It will be the first film Aviron releases.
Kidnap was expected to hit theaters back in on March 10, and that was after it was bumped from its December 2, 2016 slot. Apparently, Relativity didn’t have enough capital to properly promote the film and was shopping the film around town to potential distributors.
Luis Prieto (Pusher) directed the film, based off Knate Gwaltney’s first screenplay. The film is a heart-stopping action thriller following a mother (Berry) who will stop at nothing to rescue her kidnapped son.
The cast also includes Patrick Kearns, Lew Temple, Dana Gourrier, Christopher Berry, Robert Walker Branchaud, Erica Curtis, Ritchie Montgomery, Kurt Krause, and Michael D. Anglin.
Di Bonaventure Pictures’ Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Erik Howsam produced the film. Executive producers are Lotus Entertainment’s Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel, D.J. Gugenheim and Ara Keshishian alongside Gold Star’s Joey Tufaro and Colin Bates, Knate Gwaltney, Halle Berry and her producing partner Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas through their 606 Films production banner.
