Jai Courtney, Bobby Cannavale, Laverne Cox and Stanley Tucci will join Kate Beckinsale in Tanya Wexler’s female-driven action-comedy feature “Jolt” at Millennium Media.
Scott Wascha (“Made in Berlin”) penned the script which follows an acid-tongued female bouncer (Beckinsale) with a sometimes lethal anger-management problem. As a result, she uses an electrode-lined vest to shock herself back to normalcy whenever she gets homicidal.
After the first guy (Courtney) she has ever fallen for is murdered, she goes on a revenge-fueled rampage to find the killer while the cops pursue her as their chief suspect.
Sherryl Clark, David Bernardi, Robert Van Norden, Les Weldon and Yariv Lerner will produce. An eight-week shoot is now underway in the UK and Bulgaria.
