Michelle Rodriguez (“Furious 7,” “Avatar”) has scored the lead role in Walter Hill’s gender-swapping action thriller “Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale” for SBS.
The story centers on an ace assassin (Rodriguez) who is double-crossed by gangsters and falls into the hands of rogue surgeon (Sigourney Weaver) who turns him into a woman.
The hitwoman now sets out for revenge, aided by a nurse named Johnnie, who also has secrets. Hill penned the script from a story by Denis Hamill.
Said Ben Said and Michel Merkt will produce. Filming is set to kick off November 9th in Vancouver.
