Actress to kick ass in action thriller.

Salma Hayek (‘Here Comes The Boom,’ ‘Savages’) has closed a deal to star in director Joe Lynch’s action thriller ‘Everly.’

Based on a Black List script by Yale Hannon, the plot centres on a down-on-her-luck, stuck in her apartment, who must fend off waves of assassins sent by her ex, a dangerous mob boss.

Principal photography is expected to kick off this summer in Belgrade with Singapore-based Vega, Baby! Producing.
