Michelle Rodriguez is pissed about her gender-reassignment for Tomboy

10.28.2015

Michelle Rodriguez's next flick is about to get rather twisted.

Set to topline TOMBOY, A REVENGER'S TALE, from Walter Hill, Rodriguez will be playing a dangerous male assassin who is double-crossed by some gangsters and given over to a rogue surgeon known as "The Doctor," who'll be played by Sigourney Weaver. The Doctor turns him into a her, and Rodriguez is justifiably pissed. Seeking revenge with the help of a nurse named Johnnie, Rodriguez's character is out for blood with everyone who was a part of doing this to her.

I told you it was twisted.

There is no word on who might embody Rodriguez before the gender-swap, but, given her penchant for physical roles in the past, I think we can safely assume that when the switch happens, she won't be using diplomacy in order to achieve peace of mind.

This is one too bizarre to pass up, and I hope Hill can execute the concept well enough that it doesn't come off as a joke. This is delicate material to handle, and, in the wrong hands, could easily turn into a mess. BULLET TO THE HEAD didn't shape up too well for him, so here's to being optimistic that he can channel the same filmmaker who early in his career made the likes of THE WARRIORS and 48 HOURS among others.

I'm honestly more concerned if Walter Hill can still bring it like he did back in the '70s-'90s. But as someone ele said, this feels reminiscent of Johnny Handsome. Unless it's the cheapest possible revenge story, I think it'll at least be interesting.

Remember that movie about the dude who got killed and was going to be sent to hell because he was such a douchebag, but then sent back to Earth as a woman for a year and has to find a girl on Earth who loved him sincerely if he wants to go to heaven, and after some high jinks ensue he ended up having a drunken one night stand with his male best friend, which got him pregnant in his female body, and then he died again during childbirth, which in turn made him eligible to go to heaven because the

I don't remember the title but boy that movie was disturbingly bonkers.

Sounds like Johnny Handsome, only with gender-swapping. I'm in.

Yup, will be overshadowed by the uproar and get shut down. Some grindhouse indie production could get away with the premise, but not when the likes of Walter Hill, Sigourney Weaver and Michelle Rodriguez are involved.

A role she was born to play.

Considering she is completely unfeminine and radiates testosterone, it's about time she put that aura to good use.

Michelle Rodriguez is a terrible actress and a bore. She has no talent.
