Taraji P. Henson As A Ruthless Hit Woman in 'Proud Mary'

Taraji P. Henson As A Ruthless Hit Woman in 'Proud Mary'”

With the John Wick-esque, high-precision gun ballet now pretty much established as Hollywood's go-to action style for characters without superpowers, Empire's Taraji P. Henson is taking the style back to the '70s.

Taraji P. Henson is ruthless in the first trailer for her upcoming thriller Proud Mary. In Proud Mary, the actress stars as an assassin whose life is turned around when she meets a young boy who unexpectedly triggers her maternal instinct, according to Deadline. Starring alongside Henson, is Danny Glover, Neal McDonough and newcomer, Jahi Di'Allo Winston. This is certainly a change from her latest performance in the Oscar nominated biopic, Hidden Figures. She will also portray civil rights activist Ann Atwater in The Best of Enemies, which will be released sometime next year.

Proud Mary seems to be in a similar vein, in that it has an exceptionally distinct tone, a strong action lead with Henson, and a fresh take on the assassin-focused action subgenre.
