Woody Harrelson and Mary Elizabeth Winstead will star in Netflix’s new killer thriller Kate.
Written by Umair Aleem, the film follows the eponymous hitwoman. After she’s irreversibly poisoned, a ruthless criminal operative has less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her enemies and in the process forms an unexpected bond with the daughter of one of her past victims.
Winstead (Fargo, Birds of Prey) plays the lead role, with Harrelson (Three Billboars Outside Ebbing Missouri) co-starring opposite her. Harrelson is no stranger to Netflix, having starred in its original film The Highwaymen opposite Kevin Costner earlier this year.
Kate is directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) and produced by Bryan Unkeless (I, Tonya, Bright, Birds of Prey), Kelly McCormick (Deadpool 2, the upcoming Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw() and Patrick Newall (Dhaka, The Old Man And The Gun), with David Leitch and Scott Morgan on board as executive producers.
Among the crew are well-respected key department heads including Stunt Coordinator and Second Unit Director Jonathan Eusebio (John Wick franchise, Birds of Prey, Black Panther), Academy Award Winning Special Effects Make-Up Designer Damian Martin (Mad Max: Fury Road), Visual Effects Producer Taylor Rockwell (Bad Times at the El Royale, The Fate of the Furious) and Production Designer Dominic Watkins (The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, The Mummy, The Bourne Supremacy) and DP Lyle Vincent (Dreamland, Bad Education).
