New Cast Members Join Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Netflix’s ‘Kate’
Casting for Mary’s upcoming Netflix film ‘KATE’ has been completed and Variety has learned that Tadanobu Asano, Michiel Huisman, Jun Kunimura, Miyavi Lee Ishihara and newcomer Miku Martineau have all joined the cast alongside Woody Harrelson.
The movie follows the story of a female assassin, who, after being poisoned and given less than 24 hours to live, must go on a manhunt through the streets of Tokyo to take vengeance on her murderer before she dies. In the process, she forms an unexpected bond with the daughter of one of her past victims.
The movie will be produced by Bryan Unkeless — who most recently worked with Winstead on the Harley Quinn spinoff, “Birds of Prey” — “Hobbs & Shaw” and “Deadpool 2” producer Kelly McCormick, and Patrick Newall. “Hobbs & Shaw” director David Leitch is exec producing with Scott Morgan.
The film is being directed by “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” helmer Cedric Nicolas-Troyan and will begin production this fall.
Harrelson will play the operative’s mentor, a man who may have conflicting intentions.
