STXfilms has released the first official photos for director Navot Papushado’s forthcoming action thriller film Gunpowder Milkshake, providing us a preview of the film’s all-star female assassins squad led by Karen Gillan and Lena Headey. Also featuring Angella Bassett, Michelle Yeoh and Carla Gugino, you can check out the full photos in the gallery below!
In Gunpowder Milkshake, Sam was only 12 years old when her mother Scarlet, an elite assassin, was forced to abandon her. Sam was raised by The Firm, the ruthless crime syndicate her mother worked for. Now, 15 years later, Sam has followed in her mother’s footsteps and grown into a fierce hit-woman. She uses her “talents” to clean up The Firm’s most dangerous messes. She’s as efficient as she is loyal.
But when a high-risk job goes wrong, Sam must choose between serving The Firm and protecting the life of an innocent 8-year-old girl – Emily. With a target on her back, Sam has only one chance to survive: Reunite with her mother and her lethal associates: The Librarians. These three generations of women must now learn to trust each other, stand up to The Firm and their army of henchmen, and raise hell against those who could take everything from them.
The film stars Karen Gillan (MCU, Jumanji: The Next Level), Emmy nominee Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Michelle Yeoh (Crazy Rich Asians), Carla Gugino (The Haunting of Hill House), Oscar and Emmy-nominee Angela Bassett (Black Panther, American Horror Story), and Chloe Coleman. It will also feature Golden Globe and Emmy winner Paul Giamatti (Billions) and Chernobyl star Adam Nagaitis.
First likened to films such as Kill Bill and Baby Driver, Gunpowder Milkshake is directed by Israeli filmmaker Navot Papushado, who co-wrote the screenplay with Ehud Lavski. Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman of The Picture Company are producing as part of their overall deal with Studiocanal.
