Maria Elisabetta Winstead seeks to launch its action genre claim with its new role in Netflix’s killer revenge thriller Kate, directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (The Hunter: Winter War) and written by Umar Aleem.
Troyan told EW about a particular scene in Kate that makes him super anxious. “The hardest part was pulling the one with Maria and Miyavi in the apartment,” Troyan says. “We can’t shoot that one with stunt doubles, so they had to do it themselves. You had two actors doing a stunt job very, very close. We thought something bad could happen here. That makes me definitely nervous.”
In view of Winstead’s filmography, his career has led up to this point. It is never far from the genre of action. Protagonist of Dan Trachtenberg 10 Cloverfield Lane it elevated her to another level but starring in it Birds of Prey such as Helena Bertinelli, alias The Hunter – sealed the deal. Winstead gives an insight into who Kate is and what to expect from the film.
“Kate is a ruthless killer who is at work in Tokyo, and she is poisoned,” Winstead tells EW. “She finds out she has 24 hours to live before the poison kills her, so she sets out on a mission to find out who poisoned her and kill her before she dies.” Road making this connection with this girl named Ani (Miku Martineau), and they end up taking this mission together. It’s a sincere, brutal, murderous story! “
Kate it’s been out all over the world on Netflix this fall, and hot damn, I’m excited!
