Angela Bassett will join Lena Headey and Karen Gillan in the upcoming action thriller Gunpowder Milkshake from StudioCanal and The Picture Company.
According to Deadline and ComingSoon.net, the film is said to be a high-concept female-centric assassin thriller that spans multiple generations.
Angela Basset (9-1-1, Black Panther, Bumblebee, Mission: Impossible - Fallout, American Horror Story) will play Anna May, one of the unassuming leaders of a massive armory.
The film will be directed by Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, who also helmed the 2014 Israeli hit film Big Bad Wolves and the horror Rabies (2010). The two also wrote the screenplay along with Ehud Lavski.
Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman of The Picture Company will produce as part of their overall deal with StudioCanal.
Details of the actual plot aren’t known just yet, but Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill and Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver are considered the film’s “touchstones,” which will mix stylized action with violence.
Gunpowder Milkshake is planning on filming in Berlin this Spring.
Prorom has acquired the rights for Gunpowder Milkshake in the following territories: Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ex-Yugoslavia.
