Lotus Entertainment announced today that Academy Award winner Halle Berry (Monster's Ball, X-Men: Days of Future Past) will star in Luis Prieto's upcoming high-octane thriller Kidnap. The film is written by Knate Gwaltney, with Di Bonaventura Pictures' Lorenzo di Bonaventura ("Transformers" franchise, Salt) and Erik Howsam producing. Lotus Entertainment is handling international sales beginning in Cannes at the Marché.

Kidnap is a heart-stopping action thriller following a mother (Berry) who will stop at nothing to rescue her kidnapped son.

Executive producers are Joey Tufaro and Colin Bates, and Claudia Blumhuber and Florian Dargel of Silver Reel along with Lotus' Bill Johnson and Jim Seibel. In addition, Berry will also executive produce with her producing partner, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, through their 606 Films production banner.

Lotus Entertainment's Bill Johnson and Jim Seibel said, "Lorenzo is a renowned producer in the blockbuster action world, and we're very excited to be working on such an exciting high concept project with him. 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."

Kidnap marks the second collaboration for Lotus with di Bonaventura and Silver Reel following the remake of Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, which is currently in development.
