Michelle Rodriguez is getting revenge…
Saban Films has acquired the North American distribution rights to Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale, Walter Hill’s crime thriller starring the 37-year-old Puerto Rican and Dominican-American actress and Fast & Furious star.
One of the more controversial films in the genre, it follows a hitman (Rodriguez) who was double-crossed by gangsters and forced to undergo sex-reassignment surgery as punishment and then seeks revenge against them and the surgeon. No release date has been announced.
In addition to Rodriguez, the film also stars Sigourney Weaver, Tony Shalhoub, Anthony LaPaglia and Caitlin Gerard.
The film was written by Hill and Denis Hamill.
“This is a revenge action thriller with a twist,” said Saban Film’s Bill Bromiley. “Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale is a unique and clever film which will take audience on a cool adventure.”
