Milla Jovovich Set To Star in New Sci-Fi Action Thriller HUMMINGBIRD
Milla Jovovich has made quite a fun career out of starring in sci-fi action thrillers. She's got a new project in development called Hummingbird in which she will play an assassin. The script for the film was written by John McClain, and it must have been good because it was on the Black List of best-unproduced screenplays. But... Paul W.S. Anderson is rewriting the script, so I'm sure he'll manage to ruin a perfectly good script. Marcus Kryler and Fredrik Akerström will direct the film. The previously directed the cinematic content for the video game Battlefield I.
The film is said to be in the same vein of Lucy and the Bourne films. According to Deadline, "the story centers on a female assassin whose latest mark catapults her on a journey of shocking self-discovery."
Olivia Munn was previously attached to the project, but I think Jovovich is a much better fit for it. I'm not the biggest fan of Munn. Jovovich recently wrapped production on the Hellboy reboot and this will be her next movie. She will next be seen in Rob Reiner's upcoming political drama Shock and Awe with Woody Harrelson and Tommy Lee Jones.
