Walter Hill Directing Transgender Assassin Movie

walterhillNews comes out of the Toronto International Film Fest that Walter Hill is again about to get back into the director’s chair.  The film ‘Tomboy’ currently seeking a headliner to play a male hitman who becomes a woman with Sigourney Weaver and Freida Pinto in negotiations to co-star.

The film sees a man captured by Sigourney Weaver then forced to go through ‘gender reassignment’ surgery against his will, he then sets to presumably assassinate someone.

Weaver will play the villainous ‘The Doctor’ while the title role is yet to be cast.  ICM Partners is representing domestic rights for Tomboy with SBS and also represents Hill.  I have a feeling we have not seen the end of this type of movie but I’m surprised that Walter Hill has taken this one.
