First Look At Salma Hayek In Action Thriller 'Everly'

“You’ve never seen me like this before,” Salma Hayek told USA Today about her role in the action thriller “Everly,” which has just wrapped up filming. “And I love it. Because you really see a transformation in this character that’s noticeable and shocking. I become a badass.”

Directed by Joe Lynch (“Knights Of Badassdom“) and co-starring Togo Igawa, Masashi Fujimoto and Hiroyuki Watanabe, the Black List script by Yale Hannon centers on a down-on-her-luck woman (Hayek) who is forced to fend off waves of assassins sent by her ex, a dangerous mob boss, while trying to save her estranged mother and daughter. The film is set entirely in one apartment and is based on a concept created by Lynch.

Sierra/Affinity is handling international sales and will be presenting footage to distributors at the American Film Market this week. CAA is representing the U.S. rights.
