Deadline exclusively reports that Taraji P. Henson is set to play a hit woman in Screen Gems thriller Proud Mary.
Taraji P. Henson will be playing a hit woman whose life is turned completely around when she meets a young boy who awakens in her a maternal instinct she never knew she had.
Not going to lie, just by reading the premise thus far for the film I instantly got a Leon aka The Professional vibe for the upcoming Proud Mary film. Screen Gems are looking to hire a director quickly as they are aiming to begin production in Boston at the start of April. The Proud Mary script has been penned by John Stewart Newman and Christian Swegal, with Paul Schiff and Tai Duncan set to serve as Producers on the film.
