The sci-fi thriller from the Black List script by John McClain titled Hummingbird has a new lead actress. A year ago Zoe Saldana was cast in the role only to be replaced in the fall by Olivia Munn. Now Deadline is reporting that Milla Jovovich has signed on as the lead. With similarities to Lucy and the Bourne series, the film centers on a female assassin whose latest job takes her on a journey of self-discovery.
Hummingbird is being directed by Marcus Kryler and Fredrik Akerström with Paul W.S. Anderson currently making some script revisions. The film is being produced by Fundamental Films along with Broken Road Productions. Kryler and Akerström directed the cinematic content for Electronic Arts’ video game Battlefield 1, which set a record of over 58 million YouTube views.
Jovovich once again joins her husband Anderson on this film. They previously worked together on 2016’s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. She recently wrapped up filming Hellboy and will soon be seen in Rob Reiner’s political drama Shock and Awe along with Woody Harrelson and Tommy Lee Jones.
