De Niro will play a military veteran enjoying a relaxing break in a cabin in the Appalachian Mountains while Travolta will play the European tourist who befriends De Niro's character and is revealed to be a vengeful Serbian soldier out for blood.

Ghost Rider and When In Rome director Mark Steven Johnson will be directing, replacing the departed John McTiernan.

De Niro will next be seen in Garry Marshall's ensemble romantic comedy New Year's Eve when it comes to cinemas on December 9.
