Milla Jovovich may be done with the Resident Evil film franchise, but we expect she’ll be kicking a whole lot of ass in Hummingbird, which she’s signed on for this week.
Deadline reports tonight that Jovovich has replaced Olivia Munn in the sci-fi/thriller/action movie, described as being in the vein of Lucy and the Bourne films.
“The story centers on a female assassin whose latest mark catapults her on a journey of shocking self-discovery.”
Jovovich’s husband/frequent collaborator Paul W.S. Anderson is writing a revision of John McClain’s script, which was featured on the Black List.
Marcus Kryler and Fredrik Akerström will direct. Fundamental’s Mark Gao and Gregory Ouanhon are producing with Todd Garner for Broken Road. Fundamental’s Gary Glushon will executive produce.
Shooting begins this Summer.
