Samara Weaving has signed on for the leading role in Paramount Pictures’ upcoming action thriller titled ‘Bella’. The movie is reported to be set in the 1980s, where Weaving will play a young woman who’s seeking justice against corrupt police officers responsible for the assassination attempt on her father.
“Bella cleverly reinvents the female-led action genre pairing a sexy and unapologetic rock ‘n’ roll edge with the gritty heightened realism of ’80s New York City,” producer Craig Flores said in a statement. “Collaborating with Chad Stahelski and 87Eleven, whose talent is singular in bringing unparalleled action films to worldwide audiences, is a dream for me, Larysa, and Samara.”
“Set against the backdrop of a crime wave that gripped New York City in the ’80s, Bella is a hyper-stylized action thriller about a cop’s daughter who, as her father clings to life following an assassination attempt, goes on a rampage to unearth her father’s attacker and weed out deep-rooted corruption in the New York City Police Department,” reads the synopsis.
