Playing the survival game, a family vacation turns into a race for survival Extortion starring Eion Bailey (TV’s Ray Donovan, Once Upon a Time, and Band of Brothers), Academy Award® nominee Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips, Eye in the Sky, The Brothers Grimsby), Bethany Joy Lenz (TV’s Dexter and American Gothic), and Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon franchise, Shooter, The Color Purple).
Extortion brings the action at a Caribbean resort where Kevin Riley (Bailey) and his family take a carefree boat ride that turns tragic when they’re stranded on an island. Near death, they’re rescued by a local fisherman (Abdi) who demands a million dollars, then vanishes. Riley must race to find his dying wife (Bethany Joy Lenz) and son on an unknown island before their time runs out. Also starring Danny Glover, Extortion shows that even paradise can be deadly.
Extortion opens in cinemas nationwide on May 17 from OctoArts Films International.
