‘Billionaire Ransom’ Exclusive Clip: Rebellious Rich Kids Are In For A Rude Awakening

8 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Scottish director Jim Gillespie is best known for his classic 1997 teen horror movie “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” and he’s about to return to the big screen this month with another twisted tale of young adults struggling to stay alive. “Billionaire Ransom” stars Jeremy Sumpter and Phoebe Tonkin as two rebellious rich kids whose parents send them to a tough-love wilderness school on a remote island off the coast of Scotland. Joined by other spoiled, out-of-control sons and daughters, the two must learn to grown up quick or risk losing their inheritance

In Living Color’ Writer Turned Director – Kim Bass – Helming Western w/ Jeremy Sumpter Starring

What happens next won’t be a surprise to anyone familiar with Gillespie’s work: The camp is invaded by a group of mercenaries who kill the teachers and guards and hold the group of campers hostage for a billion dollars. »

Deciding to rely on your flight or fight instinct is a powerful decision people must instantly make when they’re unexpectedly met with a dangerous conflict.

First Trailer for Action Thriller 'Billionaire Ransom' with Ed Westwick

11 July 2016 4:45 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"If we get this done, biggest ransom in the history of the world, my friend." Gravitas Ventures has unveiled a trailer for a film called Billionaire Ransom, an interesting action thriller of sorts. The story is about a group of kids from rich families at a boarding school on an island who take matters into their own hands when the campus is taken hostage by criminals. The cast includes Jeremy Sumpter, Phoebe Tonkin, Ed Westwick, Dominic Sherwood, Elliot Knight, Sebastian Koch, and Sara Stewart. Not really sure what to make of this, some weird scenes in this trailer, but maybe it has some intriguing twists and turns. Then again, this seems like it could straight-to-dvd and it would matter either. It's made by the director of I Know What You Did Last Summer who hasn't really made much else since that film hit in 1997. See below. Here's the official trailer »
