Mabrouk El Mechri (JCVD) will direct Summit Entertainment and Intrepid Pictures’ thriller The Cold Light of Day.
The film follows Will Shaw, a young Wall Street trader whose family is kidnapped on a vacation to Spain. He’s left with only hours to find them, uncover a government conspiracy and the connection between their disappearance and his father’s secrets.
Richard Price is writing a production pass on the original script by Scott Wiper and John Petro.
Filming is expected to start in Spain this June.
