Victoria Mahoney has signed on to direct the film Shadow Force for Lionsgate. The action-drama will star Kerry Washington and Sterling K. Brown. Mahoney has directed episodes of several high profile series like Grey’s Anatomy, You, and Lovecraft Country, and was the second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, making her the only female director on a Star Wars film.
The synopsis for the film states:
“Shadow Force” follows an estranged husband and wife (portrayed by Washington and Brown) with a bounty on their heads. They are forced to go on the run with their son to avoid their former employer — a unit of shadow ops that has been sent to kill them.
Mahoney is directing from a script written by Leon Chills and Joe Carnahan. This sounds like a fun project for all involved, and I’m interested in checking it out.
