Fox Searchlight, di Bonaventura Plan Kidnap


Fox Searchlight and Lorenzo di Bonaventura are teaming up for the thriller Kidnap, from a script written by “Jackass” veteran Knate Gwaltney.

The missing-child story captures some of the same vibe as Taken; it centers on a woman whose son is kidnapped at a local mall and embarks on a chase to save him.

Those familiar with the script say it also bears similarities to Breakdown, Paramount’s 1997 thriller about a man who must locate his wife when she goes missing after their car breaks down in the desert.

John Moore is attached to direct Kidnap and also will executive produce.
