Mom’s, get ready for something a little different on your special day this year. Actress Gabrielle Union leads the newest in a slew of genre films mixing survival, drama, thriller and most importantly womanhood. It’s predecessors, films like: Obsessed, The Boy Next Door, No Good Deed and Kidnapped, are just some of the movies that land in the category some fairing better than others. It should be no surprise that the Producer of Obsessed and No Good Deed, Will Packer joins Union in a film that’s sure to score with it’s audience. Turning a well worn action movie recipe on its head with a black female lead is quickly becoming old news, leaving it up to Union and the team to kick it up a few notches and push Break In.
Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In.
Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8). Written by Ryan Engle (Non-Stop), Breaking In co-stars Billy Burke (Twilight series), Richard Cabral (End of Watch), Seth Carr (Black Panther) and Ajiona Alexus (Empire).
Joining Union and Packer as fellow producers are Will Packer Productions’ James Lopez (Girls Trip, Think Like a Man), and Practical Pictures’ Craig Perry and Sheila Taylor (American Pie and Final Destination series). Jaime Primak Sullivan, whose story the screenplay is based upon, serves as an executive producer alongside Valerie Bleth Sharp and Jeff Morrone. http://www.breakinginmovie.com
