The Trailer For Michelle Rodriguez's Cringeworthy Transgender Film Is Out
Huffington Post - about 1 year
“The Assignment,” previously called “(Re)Assignment” starring Michelle Rodriguez and Sigourney weaver, drew swift backlash from LGBTQ activists in September 2016 for what many considered to be a transphobic plot line.  And now that the trailer is out, reservations about this film seem valid. A description for the film from Cinemablend in 2015 reads: “The script, written by Hill from a story by Denis Hamill, centers on an ace assassin who is double-crossed by gangsters and falls into the hands of rogue surgeon known as ‘The Doctor,’ who turns him into a woman. The hitman (now a hitwoman) sets out for revenge, aided by a nurse named Johnnie, who also has secrets.” Late last year, Rodriguez posted the following photo Instagram, along with a bizarre caption walking through the film’s plot line and laying out the forced gender confirmation surgery her character goes through.

Michelle Rodriguez Shoots Down Those Paul Walker 'Fast 8' Rumors
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The “Fast and the Furious” cast doesn’t have friends. They got family. And that family felt an unimaginable loss when Paul Walker tragically died in a car crash in 2013. “Furious 7” gave Walker’s character, Brian O’Conner, a memorable and tear-jerking send-off at the end of the film, and it appears that’s how it will stay for now. Rumors that Walker’s character would appear in the next installment in the franchise, “Fast 8,” began spreading after an Entertainment Tonight interview with Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody. In the interview, the pair said they had a phone call with Vin Diesel to discuss the possibility. But “Fast and the Furious” actress Michelle Rodriguez just set the record straight. Image: Tumblr When asked if Paul Walker had a presence in “Fast 8” or if it was just a rumor, Rodriguez said, “That’s a rumor, man.”  The actress continued, “That’s a whole other subject matter, by the way, that is brought up for all actors to consider.
