Netflix’s upcoming assassin thriller KATE has just drawn yet another prolific actor Woody Harrelson to play a key role in the film. The three-time Oscar nominee will star alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead in this female-lead action film.
As per the latest press statement of Netflix, the story is written by Umair Aleem and the film will be directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (The Huntsman: Winter’s War).
The plotline of KATE:
After she’s irreversibly poisoned, a ruthless criminal operative has less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her enemies and in the process forms an unexpected bond with the daughter of one of her past victims.
Harrelson recently starred in Netflix’s crime film The Highwaymen along with Kevin Costner and they both played the characters of legendary Texas Rangers Frank Hamer and Maney Gault. Next, we will see him in the upcoming post-apocalyptic Zombieland (2009) sequel Zombieland: Double Tap and an American war film Midway, directed by Roland Emmerich.
This Netflix project has got backing from producers like Bryan Unkeless (I, Tonya, Bright, Birds of Prey), Kelly McCormick (Deadpool 2, the upcoming Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), Patrick Newall (Dhaka, The Old Man And The Gun).
In addition, Netflix is also collaborating with some experienced crew members: Stunt Coordinator and Second Unit Director Jonathan Eusebio (John Wick franchise, Birds of Prey, Black Panther); Academy Award-Winning Special Effects Make-Up Designer Damian Martin (Mad Max: Fury Road); Visual Effects Producer Taylor Rockwell (Bad Times at the El Royale, The Fate of the Furious); and Production Designer Dominic Watkins (The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, The Mummy, The Bourne Supremacy) and DP Lyle Vincent (Dreamland, Bad Education).
