No – it’s not The Ghost and The Darkness Part Deux, but Michael Douglas once again fashions a rifle and instead of hunting a man-eating lion, he’s aiming to kill a fellow human (Jeremy Irvine) in Beyond The Reach.
Based on the novel Deathwatch, the story centers on a corporate bigwig (Douglas) who’s getting his thrills during a Mojave Desert hunting trip. Killing animals just won’t do, and when something goes awry during the expedition, a young guide (Irvine) becomes his next target. Michael Douglas also produced the film.
Directed by Jean-Baptiste Léonetti, the project runs a fittingly lean 95-minutes, and the tense trailer shows Beyond The Reach’s potential.
Beyond the Reach hits theaters and On Demand April 17, 2015. The trailer is below:
