A couple months ago it was reported that Alias‘ Jennifer Garner was in talks to star in Peppermint, a female-driven ‘John Wick‘ type thriller. Now we have more movement on that film as Deadline has revealed that John Gallagher Jr. (10 Cloverfield Lane) and Richard Cabral (American Crime) have signed on to star opposite Garner in the action thriller. Director Pieree Morel (Taken) will helm the film.
Peppermint is about a mother who wakes from a coma after her family was attacked and murdered. Consumed with vengeance, she sets out to avenge the deaths of her husband and daughter by killing those responsible. Gallagher and Cabral’s roles aren’t known right. The script was written by Chad St. John.
Filming on Peppermint is said to begin next month. Check out the synopsis here:
Riley North (Garner) who awakens from a coma after her husband and daughter are killed in a brutal attack on the family. When the system frustratingly shields the murderers from justice, Riley sets out to transform herself from citizen to urban guerilla. Channeling her frustration into personal motivation, she spends years in hiding honing her mind, body and spirit to become an unstoppable force – eluding the underworld, the LAPD and the FBI- as she methodically delivers her personal brand of justice.
