Production Begins on Mabrouk El-Mechri’s The Cold Light Of Day Starring Henry Cavill, Bruce Willis, and Sigourney Weaver

7 September 2010 1:01 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Right on schedule, production on director Mabrouk El-Mechri’s (Jcvd) The Cold Light of Day began yesterday in Spain.  The action-thriller is set and filmed entirely in Spain and, per the press release, focuses on “a young American whose family is kidnapped while on a vacation to Spain.  He is left with only hours to find the connection between their disappearance and his father’s secrets.”  Starring Henry Cavill (Showtime’s The Tudors), Bruce Willis, and Sigourney Weaver, The Cold Light of Day is the directorial follow-up to El-Mechri’s Jcvd – a film I’ve heard a ton of positive things about but am ashamed to admit I’ve yet to see.  If you’re reading this, Mr. El-Mechri, you have my word that I’ll be checking it out soon enough.

The Cold Light of Day was penned by Scott Wiper and John Petro with revisions from Richard Price »

Slash Film tells us that none other than Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver have signed up to appear alongside The Tudors' Henry Cavill for The Cold Light Of Day.

Willis and Weaver will respectively play the father and antagonist of Cavill's cocky young Wall Street trader whose family is kidnapped while on holiday in Spain and is given only a few hours to find them while unravelling a government conspiracy.

The movie is gearing up to begin production in Spain on September 6.

Weaver and Willis Join Summit’s ‘The Cold Light Of Day’

2 August 2010 4:59 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Action icons Sigourney Weaver and Bruce Willis are gearing up to face off but unfortunately not in an Aliens/Die Hard crossover film, rather an upcoming thriller for Summit Entertainment. The two stars will join Henry Cavill, who plays a man whose family is kidnapped abroad, in The Cold Light Of Day. Willis is set to play Cavill’s father and Weaver will purportedly play the villain in the kidnapping plot.  The film is being helmed by Jcvd director Marbouk El Mechri.

Seeing these two icons together in a thriller together is reason enough to be excited about this film but the added addition of El Mechri, who clearly has a talent for utilizing former action stars, is a good sign. Also adding to the intrigue is the fact that the Weaver character was originally written for a man much like her career-defining character Ripley. These abduction thrillers always have »
