What if someone told you that Ellen Ripley and John McClane were teaming up for a kidnapping thriller? If you’re like me you’d click your heels together and start howling at the moon. According to THR, Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver will star in a film called The Cold Light of Day, which will feature “The Tudors” star Henry Cavill in the lead role. That’s right, Charles Brandon’s getting some more big screen action!
Mabrouk El Mechri, who directed the well-received Jean-Claude Van Damme faux-documentary JCVD will helm The Cold Light of Day, which centers on “a cocky young Wall Street trader who reluctantly vacations with his family in Spain. When his family is kidnapped, he is thrust into a government conspiracy and must unravel his father’s darkest secret in order to save his loved ones.”
From that tidbit of info, it’s fair to say that Willis and Weaver could be playing the parents of Cavill, which means he’s a super-spawn. Let’s be realistic, McClane and Ripley don’t produce weak offspring. It’s just not genetically possible. Even Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s character kicked ass at some point in Live Free or Die Hard.
The Cold Light of Day is scheduled to start filming on September 6th in Spain.
