‘Rings’ Star Matilda Lutz Playing a Woman On a Warpath in ‘Revenge’

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.

Fargeat explained:

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.

    She was HORRIBLE.

      She seemed nice but was terrible

        It was a combination of her character being flat and her acting. I REALLY hated the dull robotic monotone way she spoke- she just did not command the screen at all. I know this was her first big American movie but she probably would’ve been better suited for a side role instead.

        Hopefully she’s improved.

          She might be better if she doesn’t try to hide the fact that she’s Italian and a non-native English speaker.
