Ryan Phillippe will make his directorial debut with CATCH HELL, a revenge thriller recently acquired by Entertainment One. The film will see Phillippe get a chance to work with an actor he's been dying to collaborate with for a long time: himself.
Phillippe plays a former Hollywood star, who, on location in Louisiana, is kidnapped by two men connected to his past. He awakens, chained in a rundown shack, and discovers the real motives of his captors and finds himself in the middle of a twisted scheme with little chance to make it out.
Phillippe wrote the script with Joe Gossett and is producing alongside Robert Ogden Barnum and Holly Wiersma. Mark Burg and Cassian Elwes are exec producers.
