Halle Berry will star in thriller 'Kidnap'.

The 47-year-old actress - who has two children, seven-month-old son with husband Olivier Martinez and six-year-old daughter Nahla from her previous relationship with Gabriel Aubry - will play a mother who is on a mission to rescue her kidnapped son, it has been reported.

Luis Prieto will direct from a script by Knate Gwaltney, while Lorenzo di Bonaventura's Di Bonaventura Pictures is producing alongside Erik Howsam.

Lotus Entertainment, who are selling the project internationally, are delighted to be joining forces with Bonaventura who worked on 2013's 'Red 2', 2014's 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' and forthcoming 'Transformers: Age of Extinction', among other projects.

The company's chiefs Bill Johnson and Jim Seibel said: ''Lorenzo is a renowned producer in the blockbuster action world, and we're very excited to be working on such an exciting high-concept project with him. We look forward to seeing him join forces with the incredible talent of Halle Berry and Luis Prieto on a project that is sure to appeal to audiences worldwide.''

Berry will also executive produce with Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Joey Tufaro, Claudia Bluemhuber, Colin Bates, Florian Dargel, Johnson and Seibel.

Berry will next hit the big screen in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' where she will reprise her role as Storm.
