Salma Hayek (Savages, The Faculty, From Dusk Till Dawn) is set to star in Joe Lynch’s actioner Everly, the new project from Adam Ripp and Rob Paris’s Crime Scene Pictures shingle.
Hayek will star as a down-on-her-luck woman, stuck in her apartment, who must fend off waves of assassins sent by her ex, a dangerous mob boss. She’ll be replacing Kate Hudson, who had previously been earmarked for the role. Yale Hannon penned the script, which was featured on the Hollywood Black List.
The film shoots in Belgrade, Serbia this summer. I’m quite glad Lynch (Wrong Turn 2) is working on a new feature while all of the business malarky around Knights Of Badassdom (hopefully) gets sorted out. Everly apparently takes place in one room, I’m not sure why that room needs to be in Serbia – but I’m speaking with Lynch soon and will find out.
