The Hostage writer and director Brent Cote has created a website for his production company Endure Entertainment. The site includes the following synopsis of The Hostage.
A hostage (Aleks Paunovic – Personal Effects, Caprica) wakes in a dark, cold concrete room, coming face to face with his captor (Tahmoh Penikett – Battlestar Galactica, Dollhouse). In this room, nothing is as it seems and a mystery unfolds with every torturous action, every deliberate question and every terrified breath. The hostage’s will is put to the ultimate test by his sadistic captor, who will stop at nothing to uncover the powerful secret the hostage professes not to know. Is it a case of mistaken identity, a game of cat and mouse, or an old fashioned clash of wills… One thing is certain, neither will ever see their world the same again and the screams within the four concrete walls will never be forgotten.The site lists the entire cast and crew, posts behind the scenes photos and production stills, and promises a trailer on March 10.
