Katie Holmes To Play Part-Time Vigilante in Miss Meadows Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.26.2014
The rest of the time she's a grade school teacher...
Katie Holmes's new dark comedy has found distribution. Entertainment One Films announced that they've picked up the rights to Miss Meadows, which stars Holmes as a sweet and proper elementary school teacher whose perfect manners and pretty floral dresses hide a dark secret: when she's not teaching at the local elementary school or tending to her garden, she's moonlighting as a gun-toting vigilante.
The film also stars James Badge Dale, Mary Kay Place and Jean Smart and was written and directed by Karen Leigh Hopkins. A fall 2014 release is being planned.
eOne president of U.S. film and distribution Berry Meyerowitz said, "Miss Meadows is a witty, smart and vibrant film, and Katie is an absolute sensation as the seemingly wholesome, innocent teacher with a seriously deadly alter-ego. The film is as colorful and irreverent as it is dark and subversive, and audiences will fall in love with the fresh story that Karen Leigh Hopkins has brought to life."
