Henry Cavill is one of those actors who seems to be everywhere at the moment, and now he is set to star in Mabrouk El Mechri’s thriller The Cold Light Of Day.
An American family goes on holiday to Spain, but the reunion and relaxation go awry when all of them except from Henry Cavill’s character, Will, are kidnapped. Thankfully, Cavill has had to buff up for the new Superman film Man of Steel which is out in 2013, so he’ll be ready and raring to go with this new action-packed project.
And action there will be, with the promise of guns and punches, sprinting and quick thinking to lure you into the cinema. The Cold Light of Day centres around that age-old problem of finding out that your dad is not a business consultant after all, but is actually part of the CIA. Will must use his own fighting instincts to save his family, and in turn to uncover a conspiracy with his father, who is played by Bruce Willis, at the centre.
While The Cold Light Of Day may look like just another action film and one with a plot remarkably similar to Taken, but it boasts a pretty good cast of action pros. Who could forget Bruce Willis in the Die Hard movies? While Henry Cavil has recently proven himself as Theseus in Immortals. Also making appearances will be Sigourney Weaver (Alien, Avatar), Caroline Goodall (Schindler’s List, The Princess Diaries) and Joseph Mawle (Freefall, Game of Thrones).
You can catch The Cold Light Of Day in the UK from 6th April, and if you just can’t wait, check out the new trailer below:
