The sleeper drama Cairo Time was quite an impressive film from writer/director Ruba Nadda, even if the film didn't get that large of an audience. Now the female filmmaker is back with a promising thriller in the form of Inescapable, which basically feels like the version of Taken that would have been made in the indie film world. Alexander Siddig, Joshua Jackson and Marisa Tomei star in this thriller about a man whose daughter disappears in Damascus, forcing him to return to the country he left behind more than three decades ago. The film hits Toronto International Film Festival next month, so watch the trailer below!

Here's the first trailer for Ruba Nadda's thriller Inescapable found by HeyUGuys:

One afternoon, on a typical day at work, Adib (Alexander Siddig) is confronted with devastating news: His eldest daughter, Muna, has gone missing in Damascus. Now Adib, who has not been back in over 30 years, must return to Syria and deal with his secret past in order to find her. Inescapable is a thriller about a father’s desperate search for his daughter and the chaos of the Middle East he left behind. Marisa Tomei and Joshua Jackson in the film written and directed by Rubba Nadda (Cairo Time) which debuts at TIFF next month and opens in Toronto theaters September 14th, but no official US release has been set. Good?

This looks awesome. Sort of getting the same feeling I got from the trailer for Tell No One, and I adored that film. Hoping it ends up being good!

Alexander Siddig is someone i can enjoy in anything. his resume is pretty varied in terms of final product, but there's something about him i find eminently watchable. plus he has the longest birth name i've ever seen on imdb. can't tell if this is a so-so trailer for a good film, or if the trailer fits the end product. no matter, throw in Marisa Tomei as well and i'll gladly see it to find out.
