Phoebe Tonkin and Jeremy Sumpter are in talks to star in Jim Gillespie's upcoming thriller Take Down.
Penned by Alexander Ignon, Take Down follows the story of spoiled offspring of international billionaires, who are sent to a tough-love school in the remote wilderness by their parents in the hope of shaping them up. Things take a turn when they are taken hostage and held for a billion dollar ransom by a group of clever and well-armed kidnappers, and the kids are forced to try to save themselves.
Proud of the cast he is assembling, Gillespie said:
The qualities every director searches for in their actors are talent, charisma and commitment. I've been lucky enough to find all three in Jeremy and Phoebe. Mark my words, these are the stars of tomorrow."
Shooting is scheduled to begin in April.
