Bastille Day is an upcoming high-octane action thriller directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake, The Woman in Black) and written by Andrew Baldwin. It stars Idris Elba, Richard Madden, Charlotte Le Bon, Eriq Ebouaney, and José Garcia.
Michael Mason (Madden) is an American pickpocket living in Paris who finds himself in the hands of the CIA when he steals a bag that contains more than just a wallet. Sean Briar (Elba), the field agent on the case, soon realizes that Michael is just a pawn in a much bigger game and is also his best asset to uncover a large-scale criminal conspiracy in the heart of the police force. Going against commands, Briar recruits Michael to help quickly track down the source of the corruption. As a 24hr chase ensues, the unlikely duo discover they are both targets and must rely upon each other in order to take down a common enemy.
