Just as the headline states, actor Woody Harrelson has joined Mary in her upcoming Netflix film Kate. The plot for the film is as follows:
After she’s irreversibly poisoned, a ruthless criminal operative (Winstead) 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.
Harrelson will play the operative’s mentor, a man who may have conflicting intentions.
Directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) and written by Umair Aleem, the movie will also be produced by Bryan Unkeless (I, Tonya, Bright, Birds of Prey), Kelly McCormick (Deadpool 2, Hobbs & Shaw) and Patrick Newall (Dhaka, The Old Man And The Gun). Executive producers are David Leitch (John Wick) and Scott Morgan.
A fall shoot is expected to begin in Asia later this year with rumored locations being in Japan and Thailand.
Back in May, it was reported that Netflix was looking for an Asian actress to take on the role of Ani, a Yakuza Princess who is a spoiled brat that is deeply connected to the criminal underworld of the Yakuza in Tokyo, Japan. After being poisoned, Kate kidnaps Ani for leverage to infiltrate the Japanese Yakuza and track down her murderer.
