Filming underway in Puerto Rico…
John Cusack (‘The Frozen Ground’), Ryan Phillippe (‘Straight A’s’), Rachelle Lefevre (‘White House Down’), Jacki Weaver (‘Parkland’) and Luis Guzman (‘Turbo’) have all joined the cast of ‘Reclaim,’ a new suspense-thriller inspired by real-life events.
‘Reclaim’ follows Steven and Shannon (played by Phillippe and LeFevre), a young, happy-go-lucky American couple, who travel to Puerto Rico to finalize the adoption of their new seven-year-old daughter, a Haitian orphan named Nina. Charmed by the picturesque island and eager to bond with their new daughter, Steven and Shannon take advantage of their time in Puerto Rico to explore the idyllic coast and see the sights as a family, confident they are just days from returning home to begin their new lives together.
Events take an alarming turn, however, when Steven clashes with an intimidating local (Cusack) and things go from strange to absolutely terrifying when Nina disappears from her bed one night. Despite frantic efforts to recover their daughter, the young couple hit roadblock after roadblock and become increasingly desperate once their trusted connection from the adoption agency (Weaver) also goes missing. Their only ally seems to be Commandante Diaz (Guzman). As the couple find themselves further entwined in a perplexing web of lies and confusion, their own relationship begins to unravel and things take an even more startling turn toward the unexpected.
Alan White (‘Erskineville Kings,’ ‘Broken,’ ‘Risk’) is behind the camera for the thriller with filming taking place on location in Puerto Rico. The screenplay comes from Luke Davies, based on an original screenplay by Carmine Gaeta.
