Look out John Wick, Netflix seems to have dropped a worthy contender when it comes to awe-inspiring assassins in the form of its upcoming action-packed film Kate.
When will Kate be released?
Kate is scheduled to release on Netflix on 10th September 2021.
What is Kate about?
The premise of Kate has everything to make it a perfect recipe for an edge-of-the-seat thriller. A skilled assassin, who spent her whole life honing her skills to become the perfect killing machine, is thrown a curveball on her final job. When an unknown person slips her a deadly poison, which will kill her within 24 hours, she refuses to take it lying down and scours all of Tokyo to find the one who wants her dead, and of course, turn the tables on them. In the process, the hitwoman also comes across a young girl, the daughter of one of her past victims.
Kate features French filmmaker Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, known for helming The Huntsman: Winter's War, in the director’s chair. Mary Elizabeth Winstead essays the role of the titular assassin with the Academy Award-nominated Woody Harrelson playing her mentor in the film. It also stars Miku Martineau, Tadanobu Asano and Michiel Huisman, among others.
The rated-R Netflix movie is touted to be inspired by popular action films such as John Wick and Extraction, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
