After Radiant Pictures International bought the distribution rights to Billionaire Ransom (originally titled Take Down), the studio has released the first official trailer. This American thriller set in Scotland stars Jeremy Sumpter (Into the Storm), Phoebe Tonkin (Vampire Diaries), Sebastian Koch (Bridge of Spies), Ashley Walters (Bullet Boy), Dominic Sherwood (Shadowhunters), Ed Westwick (Freaks of Nature), Mark Bonnar (Line of Duty), Anna-Louise Plowman (Stargate SG-1), and Elliot Knight (Sinbad). The film is directed by Jim Gillespie (I Know What You Did Last Summer), from a script by by Alexander Ignon (Ransom). Check out the trailer below…
After a car accident that is the last straw for both their families, Kyle (Sumpter) and Amy (Tonkin) find themselves grouped with other spoiled, out-of-control sons and daughters of international billionaires sent by their frustrated parents to a tough-love wilderness school on a remote island off the coast of Scotland. This is a last opportunity for the over-privileged young adults to grow up, abandon their reckless ways and take responsibility for their own lives — or risk being disinherited. Suddenly, a group of mercenaries invade the island, kill the teachers and guards, and hold the privileged lot hostage for the largest ransom in history, a BILLION DOLLARS. When they learn they are to be killed even if the ransom is paid, their wilderness survival training is their only hope of outwitting the mercenaries and staying alive.
Billionaire Ransom is set for release on video-on-demand in USA and Canada on August 19th.
