LOS ANGELES, Aug. 23 (UPI) — Halle Berry returns to film in a dramatic first trailer for Kidnap.
The 50-year-old actress plays Karla McCoy, a mother whose son is kidnapped by a woman at a playground. The preview sees the character take justice into her own hands while pursuing her child’s abductor.
Kidnap is directed by Pusher helmer Luis Prieto, with Salt producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura as producer. The action-thriller opens in theaters Dec. 2 and co-stars Sage Correa, Lew Temple and Chris McGinn.
Berry last appeared on film in the 2014 movie X-Men: Days of Future Past and later played Molly Woods on the CBS series Extant. The actress herself is the mother of to two children, 8-year-old daughter Nahla and 2-year-old son Maceo.
“I didn’t think it was possible to have another baby,” she admitted on The Ellen Degeneres Show in 2014. “[Nahla] prayed and prayed for him for like a year and a half for a baby and a bunk bed and she got both of those things.”
Berry is known for such films as Swordfish, Monster’s Ball and Die Another Day. She is also slated for the Kingsman: The Secret Service sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which opens June 16, 2017.
