Michelle Rodriguez has taken on quite a role in the upcoming Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale. The actress will not only play an assassin, but will go from portraying a hit man to a hit woman, too. Double-crossed by gangsters, Michelle Rodriguez will go under the knife for gender reassignment surgery.
In addition to these unique plot twists, the actress is excited to be reunited with one of her Avatar co-stars. Sigourney Weaver joins Michelle Rodriguez in Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale.

Earlier this year, Rodriguez dished about how particular she is when accepting film roles.
“I can’t be the slut,” she told NJ.com. “I cannot be just the girlfriend. I can’t be the girl who gets empowered because she’s been raped. I can’t be the girl who gets empowered and then dies.”
“I just said to myself, look, ‘You’re going to just have to create your own archetype, doesn’t matter if you go broke doing it,’” she sadded. “And I almost did go broke, twice! But people finally got it: ‘Okay, Michelle is not malleable, you’re not going to influence her by shining fame and money at her,’ and they stopped offering me that sort of stuff.”
Michelle Rodriguez is clearly a force to be reckoned with in the film world. The Fast and Furious star clearly knows what she wants and settling simply isn’t a consideration.
