AVA trailer – Jessica Chastain becomes a hitwoman that goes up against Colin Farrell

I love me some Jessica Chastain, and the idea of her playing a badass hitwoman is rather intriguing. Welp, that’s exactly what we’ll get in AVA, the new action thriller from director Tate Taylor (THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN), who previously worked with Chastain on the very different THE HELP. The cast also features Colin Farrell and John Malkovich, along with Geena Davis, Common, Joan Chen, Jess Weixler, Diana Silvers, and Ioan Gruffudd. This is written by Matthew Newton (WHO ARE WE NOW), who at one point was going to direct, but was replaced by Taylor due to Newton having domestic abuse allegations brought against him. Also interesting is the name of the film, which changed, as it was originally called EVE. Check out the trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

AVA may open September 25, 2020, though there’s no official release date as of this writing
