Michelle Rodriguez & Sigourney Weaver Star in Controversial Trailer for The Assignment

The Assignment

Walter Hill, who's known for making such seminal action classics as The Warriors, 48 Hrs and Aliens, has released the trailer for his most recent crime thriller. The Assignment garnered much controversy when the plot was first announced, calling to question why a straight white cis man would helm a film that experiments with queer plotlines.

Michelle Rodriguez (Avatar, The Fast and the Furious) stars as Frank, an assassin who’s undergone a gender reassignment surgery against his will. Sigourney Weaver portrays the surgeon who has inflicts the operation on the hitman.

Hill's film looks to feature all the ignorance and lesbian exploitation that modern action films seem to be lacking.
