The original French film, directed by Fred CavayÃ©, is a race-against-time story about a male nurse who needs to orchestrate the escape of a murderer in order to keep his kidnapped wife alive. The remake will follow the same story and has Mark Wahlberg attached to star.
Wahlberg will also produce with Stephen Levinson, Evan Hayes, Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan.

His drama “The Dynamiter” is currently awaiting release.
