Michelle Yeoh has joined the cast of the forthcoming assassin action-thriller Gunpowder Milkshake, according to THR.
The Star Trek: Discovery and Crazy Rich Asians actress will star alongside Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Angela Bassett and Paul Giamatti in a mysterious plot that is currently described as centering on Gillan and Headey’s mother-daughter assassin duo. Yeoh will reportedly play a member of a secret sisterhood of arms dealers who lend Gillan’s character a hand after things go wrong.
Gunpowder Milkshake comes from Navot Papushado (Big Bad Wolves), who wrote its script alongside Ehud Lavski.
Production begins on the film in Berlin this June.
