Hostage

Florent Emilio Siri

Action superstar Bruce Willis (Sin City, Die Hard, Unbreakable, The Sixth Sense, Armageddon, Pulp Fiction) powers a nail-biting thriller that crackles with action and suspense! When Jeff Talley (Willis) became chief of police in a sleepy town, he thought he’d left behind the traumas of his career as a big city hostage negotiator. But when a random crime escalates into a deadly standoff, Talley finds himself thrust into a situation far more volatile and terrifying than anything he could ever imagine! Also starring Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects, The Whole Nine Yards), Jonathan Tucker (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and Ben Foster (Six Feet Under, The Punisher), this acclaimed hit is based on the best-selling novel by Robert Crais.
