Aside from having possibly the best title since Snakes on a Plane, Gunpowder Milkshake has flown somewhat under the radar. It has popped up on Karen Gillan and Lena Headey’s Instagrams regarding the training and shooting of the film, but now with the film securing a domestic distributor in STX, it is a little more in the spotlight.
“Gunpowder Milkshake has found the perfect domestic distributor in STX. Produced by our good partners Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman, this ambitious, high-octane action film boasts a top-class lineup of kick-ass and smart female talent who promise to light up audiences worldwide. Adam Fogelson and the team at STX has delivered time and again in this genre with hits such as Hustlers and more recently The Gentleman. Partnering with them on Gunpowder Milkshake will allow us to scale a first-class campaign firmly positioning our film as an event.”
STX has been known recently for films like The Gentlemen and Hustlers and they would like to extend that winning streak with this recent acquisition. Gunpowder Milkshake. is about an assassin duo of mother/daughter who teams up with other generations of female assassins to take down their former employers and stop the cycle of violence. That may sound a little vague but with the picture boasting a cast including Michelle Yeoh, Carla Gugino, Angela Bassett, and Paul Giamatti it seems destined to be a badass female-led action movie.
Gunpowder Milkshake is currently scheduled to be released sometime in 2020
