It was the easiest pitch in the '90s: "Die Hard on a blank." Terrorists have trapped hostages in one location, and only one man can save them. But they can't all be Speed or even Con Air. Rogue Hostage looks like the bottom of that barrel, a straight-to-VOD knockoff that somehow lured an Academy Award nominee and the star of one of the biggest franchises in the world.
Tyrese will try to stretch his acting ability, playing a PTSD-haunted marine named Kyle. He's trapped in a grocery store with his daughter and stepfather (John Malkovich), a Congressman with a lot of secrets. White militia men have taken them all hostage, so it falls to Kyle to use his particular set of skills to save the day.
Rogue Hostage will open in select theaters and on VOD on June 11.
