TOMBOY, A REVENGER'S TALE Lands At Saban For U.S. Release


Actress Michelle Rodriguez is still a leading mainstay in Fast And Furious franchise having just begun her return for the production of F. Gary Gray's Fast 8. In the meantime, her prospects beyond Universal Pictures's road-thriller franchise are also coming to fruition courtesy of 48 Hours and Bullet To The Head helmer Walter Hill's newest, Tomboy, A Revenger's Tale.

The film is certainly a double-take inducer given its premise: An assassin who seeks revenge after he's double crossed by gangsters and given gender-reassignment surgery at the behest of a sinister plastic surgeon, played by actress Sigourney Weaver. This one already has some nifty new images now viral as of earlier this year following various acquisitions already made in Berlin, and now the word from Deadline reports on the film's North American landing at Saban Films.
“This is a revenge action thriller with a twist,” said Saban Film’s Bill Bromiley. “Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale is a unique and clever film which will take audience on a cool adventure.”
I have to admit, I'm not too keen on the title as I figured Tomboy would be enough, but this is Hill we're talking about and with this being a Rodriguez headliner, I wouldn't say no to this.

The film is produced by Saïd Ben Saïd along with Michel Merkt. Hill wrote the film with Denis Hamill, with Tony Shalhoub, Anthony LaPaglia and Caitlin Gerard also starring. Stay tuned for a release date!
