Weisz Joins Kidnap Tale “Snatchback”

Rachel Weisz will star in and produce the true story kidnap thriller “Snatchback” for Braven Films. Pete Travis (“Dredd,” “Vantage Point”) penned and will direct the $15 million-budged feature.

The story is based on the life of Maureen Dabbagh, a woman from Virginia whose ex-husband stole away their two year-old daughter and took her to the Middle East in 1992. Dabbagh spent more than a decade searching for her daughter and finally found her.

Weisz will play a mercenary engaged in dangerous missions across the Middle East to help other families recover kidnapped children – while never giving up on her own search.

Weisz and Frida Torresblanco will produce and shooting aims to begin later this year.
