Kate Beckinsale Has Some Anger Issues In The First Look At Her Upcoming Action/Comedy JOLT

Amazon Studios has obtained the distribution rights for Tanya Wexler's Jolt, an action-comedy starring the wonderfully badass Kate Beckinsale, which is being described as a female version of Crank.

Amazon Prime Video has officially obtained the rights to Tanya Wexler's upcoming action-comedy Jolt, which stars Kate Beckinsale (UnderworldVan Helsing) in the lead role as a character who has something of a rage problem. 

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Beckinsale further elaborates, "My character, Lindy, is someone who since childhood has had an impulse control problem whereby she has a very difficult time not acting out and behaving badly when under pressure. She is in a weird spot in her life where she is living in an apartment where she's not got any things that she can throw and no knives and forks. She was a bouncer, and got fired, and is just desperate. She finds this experimental therapist who rigs her up with this sort of electrically-shocking vest, which is a sort of turbo equivalent of an elastic band on the wrist, that works with varying degrees of success. As part of her therapy, she goes on a date and really gets on with the guy, and then he's murdered. She's understandably upset and pissed off and tries to figure out what's happened and gets into a lot of scraps!"

In addition to Beckinsale, the star cast features Bobby Cannavale (Ant-ManAnt-Man and the Wasp), Jai Courtney (The Suicide SquadTerminator Genisys), 4x Primetime Emmy-nominee Laverne Cox (Promising Young WomanCharlie's Angels), David Bradley (Harry PotterThe World's End), Ori Pfeffer (Hacksaw RidgeYou Don't Mess with the Zohan), Academy Award-winner Susan Sarandon (A Bad Moms Christmas30 Rock), and Academy Award-nominee Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First AvengerThe King's Man). 

Amazon has also announced that the actioner, which is being described as a female version of the Jason Statham-starrer Crank, will debut exclusively on their streaming service on July 23. 

The trailer should be with us shortly, but for now, check out the first look stills below: 

Lindy is a beautiful, sardonically-funny woman with a painful secret: Due to a lifelong, rare neurological disorder, she experiences sporadic rage-filled, murderous impulses that can only be stopped when she shocks herself with a special electrode device. Unable to find love and connection in a world that fears her bizarre condition, she finally trusts a man long enough to fall in love, only to find him murdered the next day. Heartbroken and enraged, she embarks on a revenge-filled mission to find his killer, while also being pursued by the police as the crime’s prime suspect.
