Screen Gems has bought the rights to the drug-trafficking thriller, The Crossing.

From Byron Willinger and Phillip De Blasi, the film revolves around a couple on a weekend vacation in Mexico. The Hollywood Reporter adds when the husband is kidnapped by drug traffickers, his wife agrees to drive their SUV filled with heroin across the border into Texas. Once there, however, she turns the tables on the kidnappers to get her husband back.

A fast turn-around is expected for The Crossing; producers are currently looking for a director.
