“Fast & Furious“ star Michelle Rodriguez will have a new interesting role to add to her resume. Michelle decided to give her Instagram fans a sneak peek of her new role in the upcoming movie “Tomboy”. In the movie Michelle plays a male assassin who is forced to have a sex change.
According to Michelle the movie will be pretty edgy and a bit controversial,
“It’s in the B -Movie genre, a culture shock pic, shot like a ‘film Noir’ graphic novel. I played a male assassin for four days in the movie, boy was that beard itchy. Then out revenge, a twisted Doctor played by Sigourney Weaver decides to take my character’s manhood away with a sex change to teaching him a lesson.”
Michelle went on to describe how she felt about taking on the role and her experience.
“I never felt more like a woman than when I played a man. For the rest of the film I was a man stuck in a newly operated sex changed body. I had fake boob covers to look like man implants & I wore a fake hairy ‘mangina’ which you can’t really see cause they made it so hairy. In retrospect I’m I glad took the plunge, the industry seems to be running low on edgy creativity & ‘real take a chance’ controversy, sometimes it makes me want to scream. Instead, I did what I always do when I’m bored with the ‘status quo’, I shot crazy b movie Indy to express my frustration.”
The movie was written and directed by Walter Hill and will also star actress Sigourney Weaver. There is no word yet as to when fans can expect to see this gender reassignment thriller in theaters.
So, what are your thoughts? Will you be in line to catch this thriller? Let me know in the comments.
