Fans of Taraji P. Henson’s (Empire, The Curious Cast of Benjamin Button) will want to keep an eye out for her latest film Proud Mary, which comes to Digital Download and DVD this month.
Henson plays hit woman Mary, who works for an organised crime family in Boston. Her life is completely turned around however when she crosses paths with a young boy after a professional hit that goes badly wrong.
The film also stars Billy Brown (How to Get Away with Murder), Jahi Di’Allo Winston (The Upside), Danny Glover (Shooter, Lethal Weapon) and Neal McDonough (Legends of Tomorrow).
Lethal, professional hit-woman Mary (Henson) works for the most notorious crime family in town, headed by Benny (Glover). When Mary shoots a protected mobster in order to save a young boy, she must take on a rogues’ gallery of crime figures, from the Russian Mafia to those closest to her, including her former lover. Armed with her wits – and a closet full of guns – Mary must do whatever it takes to be the last woman standing in this energetic and explosive action thriller.
The release includes three behind-the-scenes featurettes:
- Mary’s World – unlock some of the mystery behind all things Mary, with the cast and filmmakers weighing in on Taraji P. Henson’s kick-ass turn as the assassin nobody sees coming.
- The Beginning of The End – dive deep into the film’s final set piece with interviews on Mary’s signature battle to sever her ties from her former life once and for all.
- If Looks Could Kill – explore Mary’s signature look and killer style, from her Maserati to the clothes and wigs that become her metaphorical armor.
Proud Mary is directed by Babak Najafi with a screenplay by John Stuart Newman & Christian Swegal and Steven Antin, and a story by John Stuart Newman & Christian Swegal. It was produced by Paul Schiff and Tai Duncan, with Glenn S. Gainor and Taraji P. Henson as executive producers.
