“Alias” fans, rejoice. Jennifer Garner isn’t reprising her role as Sydney Bristow, but she may be playing another ass-kicking heroine. The “Miracles from Heaven” actress is in talks to star in action revenge thriller “Peppermint,” Deadline reports. The Lakeshore project has been compared to a female-led “John Wick.”
“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,” the source summarizes. “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.”
Pierre Morel (“Taken”) is directing and Chad St. John (“London Has Fallen”) penned the script.
While it seemed like Lionsgate snagged worldwide rights at Cannes, Deadline writes that the deal fell apart, and STXfilms is now in talks to distribute “Peppermint” across the globe.
Garner played a CIA agent on ABC’s “Alias” from 2001–2006. She won a Golden Globe and earned four Emmy nods for the role.
“I hope this show is included with all of the shows that have celebrated strong women,” Garner has said of “Alias.” “To me, what’s mattered about this character is how much she’s struggled to hold on to her humanity in the middle of this weird world that she lives in, and how incredibly hard she works at doing the right thing when that isn’t always cut-and-dried.”
Jennifer Garner to Topline Revenge Thriller “Peppermint” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
The actress is in talks to star in the Lakeshore flick Peppermint, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Additionally, STXfilms is in talks to distribute the film worldwide, after an arrangement with Lionsgate has fallen through.
