Pruett, who has appeared in 20 films to date, plays a hospital administrator in the film that follows Jacob (Frank Grillo), a bank manager haunted by a violent heist that took the life of a coworker. Jacob teams up with his ex-cop neighbor, James (Willis), to bring down the assailant. While the two men work together to figure out the thief's next move, Gabriel (Johnathon Schaech), the highly-trained criminal, is one step ahead. When Gabriel kidnaps Jacob's wife (Olivia Culpo) and daughter, Jacob barrels down a path of bloodshed that initiates an explosive counterattack and brings all three men to the breaking point.
"It was great being a part of the film Reprisal and working with the team again in Cincinnati, Ohio," says Pruett. "I play a hospital administrator who tries to keep order when chaos breaks out. It's a thrill to be in the same film with such talented actors as Bruce Willis, Frank Grillo, Johnathon Schaech, and Olivia Culpo. I love working with the Grindstone Entertainment/Lionsgate group, and with the Emmet/Furla/Oasis team, and it was great to work with director Brian Miller again."
