Michelle Rodriguez is set to join Sigourney Weaver in a new thriller entitled TOMBOY, A REVENGER’S TALE. The film follows an assassin who is taken by a rogue surgeon and turned into a woman. Rodriguez will play the soldier, and Weaver the surgeon.
Walter Hill is writing and directing the project based on a story by Denis Hamill. Hill has worked in the sci-fi thriller genre for decades, having been a producer on Prometheus and the Alien series which jumpstarted Weaver’s career. Hill’s most recent directing gig was the Sylvester Stallone-starring Bullet To The Head.
Rodriguez’s last leading role was in Furious 7, the latest installment in The Fast And The Furious franchise. She is currently filming Milton’s Secret opposite Donald Sutherland.
