Scotsman Sam Heughan stars as a suspended special forces operator who becomes embroiled in a hijacking aboard the Eurostar in SAS: Red Notice, which will premiere on Sky Cinema next month.
Based on the best-selling novel by former SAS soldier Andy McNab, the film follows the events which unfold after Tom and his partner, Dr Sophie Hart, get caught up in a gripping hostage drama en route to Paris, where he is planning to propose.
Here’s the trailer-
Vertical’s official synopsis reads –
“When the train is deep inside the Channel Tunnel, heavily armed mercenaries, led by Grace, seize control of it and hold everyone hostage. Grace threatens to blow up the Channel Tunnel and declare economic war on a government that has its fair share of secrets to keep. Unarmed and cut off from his counter-terror team, Tom is the only hope that Sophie and the other passengers have to make it out alive. To save them he must embrace the unique psychology that makes Grace such a formidable adversary.”
Speaking about SAS: Red Notice in a Total Film interview, Outlander star Heughan said –
“I’ve done a lot of action on the projects I’ve worked on, but never like this,”
“There’s some crazy stuff in there. Talk to Andy McNab about how to kill a man with a phone, and he’ll tell you how to do it. And he’ll tell you in full detail. It’s kind of scary!”
Starring alongside Heughan and Rose are Andy Serkis, Tom Hopper, Owain Yeoman, and Tom Wilkinson and the screenplay is by Laurence Malkin and Chad Thumann.
SAS: Red Notice is released on Sky on March 12th and then direct-to-VOD in the US starting on March 16th.
