Michael Douglas reveals how he first wanted to turn Robb White's novel Deathwatch into a movie back in 1972 in one of our two exclusive previews for Beyond the Reach, debuting on Blu-ray and DVD June 16 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Jeremy Irvine also talks about his first reaction to the screenplay by Stephen Susco (The Possession), while Michael Douglas adds that he pulled elements from his Gordon Gecko character in Wall Street to play the businessman Marec. Our second exclusive video shows how Michael Douglas approached Mercedes-Benz to use their G63 AMG 6x6 truck to be a part of the film.
A cocky businessman (Michael Douglas) spends his spare time big-game hunting. But when he hires an earnest young guide (Jeremy Irvine) to take him deep into the Mojave Desert in search of prey, things quickly go awry when he shoots and kills an innocent man by mistake. When the guide refuses to be drawn into the dishonest cover-up, a deadly game of cat-and-mouse ensues across a barren and brutal desert pitting hunter against prey. The supporting cast includes Hanna Mangan Lawrence, Ronny Cox, Patricia Bethune, Martin Palmer and David Garver
The Beyond the Reach special features include a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, audio commentary with Michael Douglas, director Jean-Baptiste Léonetti and producer Robert Mitas, and the ultimate insider's guide to Michael Douglas' sensational chrome and steel co-star, the 2014 Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6.
