Is Ryan Phillippe really set to write, direct & act in kidnap thriller Chained?

Never before has Ryan Phillippe directed a feature film, but according to IM Global, that's exactly what he has planned to do with the kidnap thriller CHAINED. Who knows if this shite will get produced anytime soon, but it's apparently in pre-production. Scope the deets underneath.

Also written by and set to star Phillippe, CHAINED picks up when:

Arriving on location to shoot a movie in a small town, famous and troubled young actor Reagan Pearce (Ryan Phillipe) is kidnapped by two thugs and driven to a remote tin shack in the middle of a swamp. Bound and gagged, Reagan watches on helplessly as these two mysterious men expose his innermost secrets to the world, effectively destroying his public image and career. After discovering the motive behind their kidnapping, Reagan realizes these backwoods goons have no intention of letting him go. Taking matters into his own hands, he orchestrates a violent escape that will leave more than just blood on his hands…

Not a bad little yarn to spin, ay? We'll take it that Ryan culled some directing tips over the years and can channel them into a fine first feature. Think he's got what it takes?
