First Trailer for Walter Hill’s Trans Hitman Thriller ‘The Assignment’
The first trailer has debuted for Walter Hill‘s The Assignment, which sees Michelle Rodriguez as a transgender hitwoman who is punished by an evil doctor with sex reassignment surgery as a weird revenge for a job gone wrong.
Sigourney Weaver also stars in the film originally called Tomboy, then (Re)Assignment and finally the generic The Assignment, which Saban Films will release later this year. The film first premiered at Toronto Film Festival last year. Tony Shalhoub, Anthony LaPaglia, Caitlin Gerard, and Terry Chen co-star.
Check out the trailer for the flick, which doesn’t look that good. But this is a Walter Hill film and for that reason alone I’m a bit interested. And I like Michelle Rodriguez.
Following an ace assassin who is double crossed by gangsters and falls into the hands of rogue surgeon known as The Doctor who turns him into a woman. The hitman now a hitwoman sets out for revenge, aided by a nurse named Johnnie who also has secrets.
