Relativity Studios has just made a deal for the U.S. distribution rights to Kidnap, a thriller starring Halle Berry. Kidnap is currently in development with director Luis Prieto attached and Berry set for a starring role and on board as an executive producer along with her producing partner Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas. First-time feature film writer Knate Gwaltney wrote the script and Di Bonaventure Pictures’ Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Erik Howsam are producing the film.
