EXCLUSIVE: Bobby Cannavale (Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle), Jai Courtney (Suicide Squad), Laverne Cox (Orange Is The New Black) and Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games) are joining Kate Beckinsale (The Widow) in Millennium Media’s action-comedy Jolt, which is now under way in London.

Tanya Wexler (Hysteria) is directing the feature about Lindy, an acid-tongued woman (Beckinsale) with rage issues. Lindy controls her temper by shocking herself with an electrode vest. One day she makes a connection with Justin (Courtney), which gives her a glimmer of hope for a shock-free future but when he’s murdered, she launches herself on a revenge-fueled rampage in pursuit of his killer. Meanwhile, detective Vicars (Cannavale) and detective Nevin (Cox) mark Lindy as their chief suspect.
