British comedy A Kind Of Kidnapping comes to cinemas in July, and here’s the trailer for the comedy thriller.

Patrick Baladi is probably best known as Neil, David Brent’s boss and arguably the real antagonist of The Office. He now headlines British comedy thriller A Kind Of Kidnapping. The synopsis reads as follows…

30-something couple Maggie and Brian, both struggling to get by, decide to kidnap London politician Richard Hardy. Sadly no one wants to pay the ransom but, just before they let Hardy go, he wonders if he might be able to spin the situation to his advantage if they continue to keep him hostage. Why? Well, he’s never had better PR than this and he believes the sympathy vote will help with his campaign to one day become Prime Minister. What follows is a series of lies, double crossing and even murder, in this taught, darkly comic thriller.

Baladi stars as Hardy, alongside Kelly Wenham and Jack Parry-Jones as Maggie and Brian. Also in the cast are Olivia Poulet, Leila Hoffman, Luke McQueen, Gary Kitching and Sherelle Armstrong.

Comedian Dan Clark, who previously worked with Baladi in superhero sitcom No Heroics, wrote and directed the film.

A Kind Of Kidnapping will be released on the 13th July with a series of screenings followed by a Q&A with Clark and the cast. You can find out dates and details over at the British Comedy Guide.

The film will then be available to stream or buy from the 24th July. Watch the trailer below:
