It is great to see that 2021 has been a year of some fantastic works. There have been movies that have released and made the audiences go wild. And there are many more to go for this year! And one of the movies that are about to take you back by shock is Netflix’s action thriller, Kate.
That’s right! Mary Elizabeth Winstead is ready to play the role of a female assassin who has 24 hours left to live after being poisoned.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Kate!
The best thing about the movie is the woman playing the role of the titular character. That’s right! It is none other than Mary Elizabeth Winstead. It is no surprise that she has been one of the most famous names in the Holly wood industry over the past few years. She has starred in some great franchises and even some surprisingly loving standalone films. She starred alongside Bruce Willis in Live Free or Died Hard. Mary has even been a part of Sky High and the Final Destination franchise as part of the third movie. She has famously been known for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World as Ramona Flowers.
Some of Mary’s most recent works include Gemini Man, where she starred alongside Will Smith. And other than that, she also took on the role of The Huntress in Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey, where Margot Robbie played the titular role. Mary has also had the honor of working alongside the renowned director Quentin Tarantino, is his crime movie, True Romance.
Woody Harrelson joins the cast!
The big surprise that the movie gave away to the fans is that there is a new cast member! It is none other than the magical Woody Harrelson! He has been part of some of the biggest projects over the past few years. Now, he is here to grace the cast with his talent!
Woody Harrelson is no less of a masterpiece himself as he has starred in some big names over the past few decades. He has been part of the hit detective and mystery series True Detective, along with Matthew McConaughey. In addition, he has been very well known for being one of the Horsemen, Merritt McKinney, in the popular movie franchises, Now You See Me. He starred alongside Jessie Eisenberg, Lizzy Caplan, Dave Franco, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, and Daniel Radcliffe in the series.
As of now, Woody is also a part of another big upcoming project. Like many other actors, Woody has set foot in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as he will be starring as the main antagonist in the upcoming movie ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage”. He will be starring alongside a great cast, Tom Hardy, Naomie Harris, and Michelle Williams. He will be taking on the role of Carnage.
Woody’s role in the movie ‘Kate’ has not been disclosed yet as it is still in much of its early production stage. The only role that has been disclosed is that of Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
What exactly is it about?
As intense as the cast is, the story is even better. The movie’s main plot focuses on Kate’s character, who is in a race against time, as she has been poisoned. The poison will only let her live up to a time of 24 hours. So she takes up the job of being a cold-blooded assassin. She will be taking on a life-saving mission or may come out the other way as a ruthless soldier, much like John Wick. All we can say, that all of the characters in the story are about to raise some serious anarchy.
With creators that take back their works to creating movies such as John Wick, we can only expect what happens next. There are many expectations from the fans as she might be out on the trail for vengeance against someone or save herself from dying just in time. All we can say is that this movie gives Mary Elizabeth Winstead to rise to her full potential actor as she has never really played a solo action hero of a movie. Her recent work in Birds of Prey was also a supporting role. But since this one is surrounding her all the way, this might be her chance to rise high in the arena of action and adrenaline.
Cedric-Nicolas Troyan as the director!
One of the most interesting facts about the movie is the man behind the idea. For those of you who don’t know, it is none other than Cedric-Nicolas Troyan as the director of the movie. He has had quite the profile in the past few years as he has worked on some very famous motion films.
He has worked as a visual effect artist for movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. He was also the visual effects supervisor and second unit director for the hit film Snow White and The Huntsman. That movie also went on to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects. The movie starred Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, and Chris Hemsworth in the main roles.
He’s even worked as a second unit director on the movie Maleficent. And most recently, he has directed The Huntsman: Winter’s War, which starred Chris Hemsworth Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, Nick Frost, and Jessica Chastain in the main roles. After all of this marvelous work, it is now very exciting to have Troyan on as the director of this movie. After such a profile, we can only expect the best of the best from this upcoming blockbuster.
Mark the dates!
The movie is set to release on the 10th of September. It will only be released on Netflix and will serve as an original movie for the platform. So many movies are coming this year, and this movie might serve as one of the biggest blockbusters. With a plot and cast like that, this movie might be unbelievably perfect. The date announcement was made through a short teaser that Netflix released.
The teaser gave away the feeling that Kate, as a character, wants to leave a mark behind. If the movie turns out to be a huge success, then who knows what could happen. Like any other good action movie, this movie could also have a sequel to its name where Mary reprises her role. The cold-blooded assassin is ready to shock you all to the very core. All we can say at this point is to patiently wait for this one. It is time for the production to make some major announcements for the movie and then drop the trailer as soon as possible. The fans have been waiting for some major blockbusters, and this could be a surprise out of nowhere. It’s a green light for Kate!
