Kate Beckinsale is returning to her action movie roots in Amazon’s upcoming action/comedy Jolt.
The Underworld actress (and bonafide Instagram swimsuit sensation) is bent on revenge in the upcoming movie co-starring Bobby Cannavale, Jai Courtney, Laverne Cox, Susan Sarandon and Stanley Tucci that’s been described as “a a female version of Crank”, the 2006 Jason Statham action flick.
Amazon explains all in the official plot synopsis here:
Lindy is a beautiful, sardonically-funny woman with a painful secret: Due to a lifelong, rare neurological disorder, she experiences sporadic rage-filled, murderous impulses that can only be stopped when she shocks herself with a special electrode device.
Unable to find love and connection in a world that fears her bizarre condition, she finally trusts a man long enough to fall in love, only to find him murdered the next day. Heartbroken and enraged, she embarks on a revenge-filled mission to find his killer, while also being pursued by the police as the crime’s prime suspect.
Amazon Studios starts streaming the Tanya Wexler-directed Jolt on Prime Video beginning July 23rd.
