Leonardo DiCaprio is just totally in thriller mode. His recent film Shutter Island already has made the box office cash registers ringing. The film has been doing its rounds with directors but it has not really pointed the finger at anyone yet. Leo has been signing films here and there.
The film follows a small town carpenter who takes matters into his own hands when is daughter and her friend are kidnapped.
The film is very much like Mystic River meets Taken that does sound all too good. But Leo can make all the difference. The film in the initial stages was attached to actors like Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg. Brian Singer who wanted to direct the film in the beginning but still a director is not attached to the project.
