The-Disappearance-of-Lenka-Wood-PosterFour years ago, it was Alice Creed’s disappearance act that brought one of the most memorable crime-thrillers in recent memory to the big screen. Now production has wrapped on The Disappearance of Lenka Wood, and whilst the two films are related purely in so far as their names are similar, that similarity will somewhat inevitably lead to comparisons in the coming months.

With the New York- and Turkey-set, Taken-esque thriller officially wrapped, the first poster has been released, giving us a look at Petra Bryant making her feature debut as the eponymous Lenka Wood.

A New York couple’s honeymoon in Turkey is turned upside down when the wife is kidnapped. Her ex-military husband has to act quickly, and violently, to get her back alive.

Mark O’Neal (Wanted) stars opposite Bryant in the male lead, with Tom Benedict Knight (Kick-Ass 2), Akbar Kurtha (24), Anais Alvarado, Simon Phillips (Airborne), and Billy Murray (Rise of the Footsoldier) supporting.

Tanter is of course directing once more from his own script, with Simon Phillips, Alain Wildberger, and Tanter producing.

Gemma Arterton was absolutely brilliant in the lead of J. Blakeson’s The Disappearance of Alice Creed, and with Tanter and Phillips collaborating with Bryant on a handful of films on their upcoming slates, it looks like she’s one to watch in the near future.

The Disappearance of Lenka Wood doesn’t have a firm release date yet here in the UK, but it’s eyeing a Summer 2014 slot, and is certainly on our radar. With any luck, the first trailer will be landing online soon, and we can get a flavour for the kind of crime-thriller we can look forward to seeing next year.
