Ashley Walters (”Demons Never Die”) has boarded Jim Gillespie’s kidnapping thriller “Take Down”.
The film, also starring Jeremy Sumpter, Ed Westwick, Phoebe Tonkin, Sebastian Koch, Dominic Sherwood, Julia Ragnarsson, Max Deacon and Elliot Knight, has kicked off production. Filming continues over the next 7 weeks in Wales and Isle of Man.
Directed by Jim Gillespie (”I Know What You Did Last Summer”) and written by Alexander Ignon (Ransom), “Take Down” focuses on the reckless sons and daughters of international billionaires, who have been sent by their frustrated parents to an exclusive, tough-love boot camp on a remote island, where they will be taught basic survival skills in the hope it will teach them to take responsibility for their lives. When they are taken hostage and held for a billion dollar ransom by a group of sophisticated kidnappers, the young captives suddenly need every ounce of their brief training to survive.
