There’s news to report today for the upcoming Actioner Shadow Force which was recently acquired by Lionsgate. The film which is set to star Kerry Washington and Sterling K. Brown has found its director in Victoria Mahoney who is the first woman ever to direct a Star Wars film. Mahoney was the 2nd unit director on The Rise Of Skywalker and now she will be bringing her talents to the Mr. and Mrs. Smith style action pic.
Deadline brought the word and according to the site, “Shadow Force, written by Leon Chills and Joe Carnahan, follows an estranged husband and wife with a bounty on their heads who must go on the run with their son to avoid their former employer – a unit of shadow ops that has been sent to kill them.”
“Victoria is one of the most impressive and in-demand directors working today,” Lionsgate Motion Picture Group President of Production Erin Westerman said in a statement. “Like with all of her work, she will bring iconic action, warmth, style, and gravitas to Shadow Force. We know she, along with Kerry and Sterling and the talented production team will elevate this exciting production.”
Washington and Brown also expressed their excitement to work with Mahoney in a joint statement.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Victoria Mahoney. Her vision is inspiring. Her enthusiasm is infectious. Her artistry and insight have already deepened this electrifying project.”
