Halle Berry‘s long-awaited ‘Kidnap’ has finally secured a new release date.
After spending two years in limbo because of financial issues caused by its parent studio Relativity, the thriller will arrive on August 4th.
Industry insiders fear that the serially-delayed release may not fare as well as it should because of its pushback.
Fortunately, the project is said to have tested quite well among African American audiences and is now being backed by a newly-formed distribution company named Aviron Pictures built by David Dinerstein, formerly of Paramount Classics and Fox Searchlight.

One day, upon entering a local park, Karla sees her son suddenly being abducted out of the blue by a kidnapper. To save Frankie from being taken, Karla goes out on a mission to demand people in the city to help rescue her son.
