Kill or be killed. Vertical Entertainment have released the First (U.S) Trailer for Thriller Ava starring Jessica Chastain. The film is directed by Tate Taylor who also directed The Girl On The Train, Ma and The Help the latter film which Chastain also starred in.
Our leading lady stars as our titular character, an assassin who works for an Black ops organisation. Travelling the world working but when a job goes pear shaped , she fights for her survival.
This film has a bit of a dark past. Originally the film was called Eva and was to be directed by Matthew Newton. He was replaced by Taylor largely thanks to accusations of assault and domestic violence. Rightly so Chastain made her angers public, she also an advocate of #MeToo Movement.
Not sure if the script has been changed or not, however if you enjoy the John Wick vibe you might just like this one. Does Ava get back stabbed by one of her peers? Possibly Colin Farrell. This type of film you might have seen a thousand times before, but I’m looking forward to this one…
Ava is a deadly assassin who works for a black ops organization, traveling the globe specializing in high profile hits. When a job goes dangerously wrong she is forced to fight for her own survival.
The film also stars Diana Silvers, Colin Farrell, John Malkovich, Geena Davis, Ioan Gruffudd, Common, Joan Chen, and Jess Weixler.
