Ed Westwick Holds Rich Kids Hostage in 'Billionaire Ransom' Trailer

Ed Westwick is joined by other mercenaries while holding a group of rich kids hostage on an island in the trailer for his new movie Billionaire Ransom.

The 29-year-old actor stars alongside Jeremy Sumpter, Phoebe Tonkin, Dominic Sherwood, Elliot Knight, and Sebastian Koch in the film, being released in theaters and on demand on August 19.

The movie follows a group of over-privileged, out-of-control young adults who have been sent by their frustrated, billionaire parents to a tough-love wilderness school on a remote island off the coast of Scotland. Kyle (Sumpter) and Amy (Tonkin) find themselves in this group as a last opportunity for them to take responsibility for their own lives and abandon their reckless ways, or risk being disinherited. Suddenly, a group of mercenaries led by Billy Speck (Westwick) invade the island and hold the privileged lot hostage for the largest ransom in history: one billion dollars. When Kyle learns they are all to be killed even if the ransom is paid, their wilderness survival training is the only hope of outwitting the mercenaries and staying alive.

Star Wars' Young Han Solo Casting Search Brings In Tons of Stars!

The hunt to play a young Han Solo, the role originated by Harrison Ford in the original Star Wars films, has heated up and apparently about 2,500 actors have met with or put themselves on tape to star in the new films.

There is plenty of time to make the choice, as the next Star Wars film will not begin shooting until January 2017 for a May 25, 2018 release date.

Dave Franco, 30, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, 25, Miles Teller, 28, Jurassic World‘s Nick Robinson, 20, Harry Potter‘s Tom Felton, 28, Gossip Girl‘s Ed Westwick, 28, and The Fault in Our StarsAnsel Elgort, 21, are all on the list of guys who have auditioned.

THR, who revealed just a small portion of the list, notes that the efforts to get a well known actor for the role of young Han are different than J.J. Abrams‘ casting choices for Star Wars: The Force Awakes. J.J. chose relative newcomers Daisy Ridley and John Boyega for his leading roles.
