proud mary taraji p henson

Henson’s latest action flick as a hit-woman in Boston arrives in theaters next January.

Watching the trailer to Proud Mary, Taraji P. Henson’s newest action affair is a throwback to not only John Wick or James Bond but also The Professional. The plot of that film and Henson’s upcoming kick-ass flick are eerily similar, right down to having to protect a young child as all hell breaks loose around you. The trailer, slick and seductive features Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” rendition as a perfect soundtrack, right down to the gun shots matching up with Turner’s vocals.

The film stars Billy Brown, Neal McDonough, reunites The Color Purple co-stars Danny Glover and Margaret Avery, Xander Berkeley and Jahi Di’Allo Winston, better known as young Ralph Tresvant from the The New Edition Story.
