Kate Hudson to Battle Assassins in ‘Everly’

7804264.jpgKate Hudson, action star? The 32-year-old actress, who broke out in fine fashion with Almost Famous but has since become known for grating rom-coms like Fool’s Gold and My Best Friend’s Girl (and shame on whichever two Facebook users chose to “like” the latter film on our site), is in talks to star in the Joe Lynch-helmed action flick Everly, Variety reports.

Based on a Black List-approved script from Yale Hannon, the film chronicles a “down-on-her-luck woman, stuck in her apartment, fending off waves of assassins sent by her ex, a dangerous mob boss.” It is being produced under the auspices of the indie outfit Crime Scene Pictures, headed by Adam Ripp and Rob Paris, and will be pitched to well-heeled attendees of the European Film Market at next week’s Berlin Film Festival.
