With Grand Piano getting rave reviews (read ours here), John Cusack is a hot commodity again; and he, Ryan Phillippe, Rachelle Lefevre, Jacki Weaver, and Luis Guzman are all starring in Reclaim, a suspense-thriller inspired by true events.
Per Deadline the film has just begun shooting in Puerto Rico and is directed by Alan White (Risk, Broken). The most recent script draft is by Luke Davies from an original screenplay by Carmine Gaeta.
Phillippe (“Damages,” The Lincoln Lawyer) and Lefevre (“Under the Dome,” Twilight) play an American couple who head to Puerto Rico to finalize the adoption of their new seven-year-old daughter, a Haitian orphan named Nina. They take the time to explore the idyllic coast to bond as a new family, when Steven clashes with an intimidating local (Cusack, pictured above) and Nina disappears from her bed one night.
The film is being produced by Paradox Entertainment’s Fredrik Malmberg and Silvio Muraglia along with Brian and Josh Etting of Paradox Entertainment.
It is, of course, heading to AFM with Arclight Films handling international sales and Paradox making the domestic deal so look for more soon.
