Supermodel Sasha Luss Is A Government Assassin

EuropaCorp has released the first trailer for Anna, the latest action movie written and directed by French filmmaker Luc Besson (Leon, The Fifth Element, Lucy, and Valerian).

Besson returns with yet another assassin film, this time starring Russian supermodel Sasha Luss, making her lead debut.

The movie follows Anna Poliatova’s (Luss) journey who turns into a government assassin after her brief stint as a supermodel. When she scales up in her job as a contract killer, she is hired by a mysterious woman (Helen Mirren) for a dangerous task.

Here’s the trailer:

The film was reportedly delayed after Besson was accused of sexual assault and harassment by nine women, with one alleging that she was drugged and raped by the director.

However, the Paris prosecutor’s office says an investigation failed to turn up evidence to support the woman’s rape allegation against Besson and the case has been dropped.

The film also features Cillian Murphy, Luke Evans, Lera Abova, Alexander Petrov, and Anna Krippa.

Anna is scheduled to hit screens on 21 June.
