Peppermint is a revenge story likened to John Wick, but with a female protagonist. The director of Taken, Pierre Morel, will be attached to the project. The rights of the film were first purchased by Lakeshore, who invest mostly in horror. Lionsgate struck a deal with Lakeshore to distribute worldwide.
Talks are that Jennifer Garner is slated to play the main role. She hasn’t been in action for a while but Garner is all geared up to get back in punching and shooting mode with this film.
Despite the sweet name, Peppermint, the film is about a woman’s husband and daughter gunned down in a drive-by. The heroine wakes up from a coma and spends years learning to become a lethal killing machine. On the 10th anniversary of her family’s death, she targets everyone she holds responsible, the gang that committed the act, the lawyers that got them off, and the corrupt cops that enabled the murderous incidents.
It will come out sometime in 2018.
