Samara Weaving to headline 80s-set action thriller Bella

Having earned her stripes in Ready or Not and then gone toe-to-toe with Ghost Face in Scream VI, Samara Weaving is set to be put through the wringer once again in Paramount’s ’80s set action-thriller Bella

According to Deadline the Babylon actor is set to headline Bella for The Whistleblower director Larysa Kondracki, who has also helmed episodes of Better Call Saul and The Walking Dead

Bella is set against the backdrop of a crime wave that gripped New York City in the ’80s, and is described as a hyperstylised action thriller about a cop’s daughter who, as her father clings to life following an assassination attempt, goes on a rampage to unearth her father’s attacker and weed out deep-rooted corruption in the New York City Police Department.

Produced by John Wick: Chapter 4 director Chad Stahleski through his 87eleven Entertainment, along with Craig Flores, who is producing via Bread & Circuses Entertainment, and said in a statement that “Bella cleverly reinvents the female-led action genre pairing a sexy and unapologetic rock ‘n’ roll edge with the gritty heightened realism of ’80s New York City. Collaborating with Chad Stahelski and 87Eleven, whose talent is singular in bringing unparalleled action films to worldwide audiences, is a dream for me, Larysa, and Samara.” 

Jesse Wigutow (Eragon) is writing based on a script by Jason Markarian.
