Matilda Lutz battled Samara. Now she’s getting some sweet Revenge.
Variety reports out of EFM that the Italian actress will topline Coralie Fargeat’s (Reality +) directorial debut, being described as a female-powered thriller. The film, being shot in both French and English, has a certain I Spit On Your Grave quality to the premise: Lutz will play a woman seeking the titular revenge after being abused by three men and left for dead in the desert.
At the beginning ‘Revenge’ plays with this superficial representation [of a young woman] and then reverses it: The female character becomes the strong heroin of the movie and the one who drives the action.
The cast also includes Kevin Janssens, Vincent Colombe and Guillaume Bouchède.
Filming began this week in Morocco.
