Trailer: Trans Hitman Tale “The Assignment”

The first trailer is out for “The Assignment,” director Walter Hill’s rather dubiously conceived hitman film which played at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival to bad reviews.

Michelle Rodriguez plays a male hitman for the mob who is double-crossed and goes under gender reassignment surgery against his will. When he wakes up a woman, he sets out to find revenge against those who changed her identity.

Sigourney Weaver also stars in the film which Saban Films will release later this year.
