Hostage: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stratus Film Co. has picked up the action script "Hostage" in turnaround from Revolution Studios. Based on Robert Crais' novel, the project will star Bruce Willis. Florent Siri is directing. Principal photography begins in January, with Willis and Arnold Rifkin's Cheyenne Enterprises producing alongside Stratus' Bob Yari and Mark Gordon. "Hostage" has now been put into turnaround twice, having been originally set up at MGM in 2001 when the studio paid high-six against low-seven figures to option feature film rights to the novel for Cheyenne to produce as a possible starring vehicle for Willis.

Stay tuned for more on this project...
