Jolie instructed People that her character in Those Who Wish Me Dead “carries a lot of guilt, and is quite broken. She’s a smokejumper and a bit of an adrenaline junkie, but she’s also somebody that has experienced tragedy, and she feels responsible for it.”

Sheridan is the Oscar-nominated author of Hell or High Water and each Sicario films in addition to Amazon’s upcoming Michael B. Jordan motion film Without Remorse. He additionally wrote and directed Wind River and co-created the hit Kevin Costner collection Yellowstone.

It’s fairly nice to see Jolie again in motion hero mode however blended with the darkness and brutality that Sheridan brings to his films. The funniest a part of the trailer is when Jolie steps out with a pry-axe and I assumed, “Huh, I bet Jolie would have made a good Tomb Raider.” Anyway, my incapability to recollect something from the 2000s apart, this seems to be like an exhilarating trip, and I can not wait to see it. Those Who Wish Me Dead arrives in theaters and on HBO Max on May 14th.
