Oooh, boy. Where do I start? Because you have to wonder about Walter Hill’s thought process:

Movie Producer: Let me get this straight. You want to make a movie about a hitman who becomes a hitwoman, by a vengeful surgeon?
Walter Hill: Correct.
Movie Producer: Okay, then! Here’s all the money.

Walter Hill’s The Assignment is expected to hit theaters sometime this year.

A revenge tale about an ace assassin who is double-crossed by gangsters and a rogue plastic surgeon operating on the fringes of society. The story becomes a trail of self-discovery and redemption against a criminal mastermind opponent. Starring Michelle Rodriguez, Sigourney Weaver, and Tony Shalhoub.
