Charlize Theron’s Atomic Blonde better brace herself, because there’s another unstoppable killer on the way. Pierre Morel, the director of 2008’s Taken, is tackling Peppermint, an upcoming female-centric actioner. And word on the street is that Jennifer Garner (Elektra) is currently in talks to play the title character.

According to Deadline, Peppermint is a high-action revenge thriller, with a premise likened to John Wick and John Wick 2, only with a female protagonist. When her husband and daughter are 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.

In addition to Peppermint, there’s another female John Wick spin-off in the works that will based off Shay Hatten’s script for Ballerina (read about it here).

Updates to follow. For now, say hi to this female assassin:

    Excited to Atomic Blond but this Pierre Morel “SHAKY CAM master” sucks.

  2. Paul Bramhall says:

    C’mon…you can’t use Garner’s filmography reference as ‘Daredevil’, when the character she played had her very own movie with ‘Elektra’!
