First look at Nathalie Emmanuel in action remake

Peacock has unveiled a first look at Nathalie Emmanuel in her new movie The Killer.

The Killer is a remake of John Woo's 1989 action movie of the same name, and will see him return as director.

In a Twitter/X thread, Peacock shared three images of Emmanuel in her lead role as Zee, an infamous assassin. She is pictured alongside co-star Omar Sy, who plays police investigator Sy.

"Never send boys to do a woman's job. #TheKiller, from legendary director John Woo, arrives August 23, exclusively on Peacock," reads the caption on the first post.

Starring alongside Emmanuel, Sam Worthington plays Zee's secretive mentor and handler Finn, while Diana Silvers plays a blind young woman named Jenn.

When Zee refuses Finn's assignment to kill Jenn in a Paris nightclub, her alliances are quickly broken and she becomes hunted by the savvy police investigator Sy.

In an interview with IGN, Emmanuel talked about her character's struggles in the movie. "Zee has been living a life of solitude if you will, and she has maybe one or two friends, if you can even call them that, because she's a contract killer. That's her whole life, and she's very, very good at it. And she has a very specific code in how she likes to do things.

"And when she's told who and when to kill somebody, she does it in her own specific way. And her dilemma in this movie is that she's being asked to kill somebody who she doesn't believe deserves it. And for some reason she can't believe that they deserve to be killed," she said.

The Killer will be released exclusively on Peacock on August 23. A UK release date has not yet been announced.
