Weaver, Pinto Up For Transgender Hitman Film

Sigourney Weaver and Freida Pinto are in negotiations to co-star in the Walter Hill-directed high-profile transgender-themed action thriller “Tomboy” for The Solution.

The story follows a successful male assassin who is double-crossed by gangsters and ends up in the hands of a rogue surgeon (Weaver) who turns him into a woman.

She sets out for revenge, aided by a nurse named Johnnie (Pinto) who also has secrets. A search is underway for an actress to take on the role after the originally slated Andrea Riseborough had to pass due to “Bloodline” scheduling issues.

Hill and Denis Hamill penned the script while Said Ben Said will produce.
