Michael Douglas on the Hunt in First Trailer for 'Beyond the Reach'
This summer we'll see Michael Douglas in Marvel mode as he has a co-starring role in Ant-Man alongside Paul Rudd. But before then, Douglas is getting a little dark with a thriller called Beyond the Reach. In what is essentially a more campy adaptation of The Most Dangerous Game, the film follows an upscale loan shark who is taking in the Mojave Desert with a little hunt. But when his young guide (Jeremy Irvine) is surprising by his human-hunting game, he ends up being the next target, with nowhere to run but deeper into the scorching, dry wasteland. This looks like an awesome B-movie right on par with the first Taken.
Here's the first trailer for Jean-Baptiste Léonetti's Beyond the Reach, originally from Yahoo:
Beyond the Reach is directed by French filmmaker Jean-Baptiste Léonetti and written by Stephen Susco (The Grudge), based on the book Deathwatch by Robb White. A high-rolling corporate shark (Michael Douglas) and his impoverished young guide (Jeremy Irvine of War Horse) play the most dangerous game during a hunting trip in the Mojave Desert in this lean, mean cat-and-mouse thriller. Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions will release the film on VOD and in limited theaters on April 17th later this spring.
