I don’t know if you could consider this a problem, but anytime I see or hear about Mary Elizabeth Winstead, my mind gravitates to Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. More recently we have seen her in films like Gemini Man. As well as Warner Bros./DC’s Birds of Prey as Huntress. Now she is ready to star in a few Netflix feature film titled, Kate.
Yesterday, Netflix gave us some new first-look images of Winstead in action. Below you can also find the first description of Kate.
After she’s irreversibly poisoned, a ruthless criminal operative has less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her enemies and in the process forms an unexpected bond with the daughter of one of her past victims.
I wonder if this is going to be a fast-paced film like Crank was oh so many years back. Winstead talked with EW about what to expect from her role in the film, she said that “Kate is a ruthless assassin who is on a job in Tokyo, and she gets poisoned. She finds out she has 24 hours to live before the poison kills her, so she sets out on a mission to find out who poisoned her and kill them before she dies. Along the way, she forges this bond with this teenage girl named Ani (Miku Martineau), and they end up taking on this mission together. It’s a heartfelt, brutal, assassin story!”
Kate is directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan based on a screenplay by Umair Aleem. It is produced by Bryan Unkeless, Kelly McCormick, and Patrick Newall. Joining Winstead is Tadanobu Asano, Miyavi, Michiel Huisman, with Jun Kunimura, and Woody Harrelson. The film will also be introducing Miku Martineau.
