Tomboy, A Revenger's Tale of Forced Feminization

A forced feminized hit man.

Controversial move this one, but Michelle Rodriguez is to play a hit man that is put under the knife by Sigourney Weaver (who plays the doctor) and turned into a woman.

The Hollywood Reporter writes:

"The script, written by Hill from a story by Denis Hamill, centers on an ace assassin who is double-crossed by gangsters and falls into the hands of rogue surgeon known as "The Doctor," who turns him into a woman. The hitman (now a hitwoman) sets out for revenge, aided by a nurse named Johnnie, who also has secrets."

The movie is expected in theatres next year.

(Someone has to tell them that a tomboy is female expressing masculine behavior, and not the other way around)


  1. (LOL Yeah, unless they want to "miss-spell" it as TOMBOI.) I might expect it to refer to the hit-man-now-woman's less than feminine mannerisms post-op. Seeing as the one undergoing an unwanted transition would not be likely to have spent much time exhibiting effeminate behaviours, nor be inclined to adopt them eagerly afterwards... Thus appearing to be an example of the titular term.

    Still, I wouldn't object terribly to turning out looking like Ms. Rodriguez!


  2. not really sure about this film but i'll give it a watch if it finds its way onto Amazon Prime
