The film Lou gives the brilliant Allison Janney a chance to show off her action chops, and here’s the first trailer.

Unexpected actors taking on action roles is almost a subgenre at this point. From Bob Odenkirk in the heaps of fun Nobody to Colin Firth in the Kingsman series, seeing actors usually known for comedy or otherwise completely different kinds of roles pulling off complicated choreography onscreen is always a thrill.

This brings us to Lou, in which Allison Janney takes charge as the titular character. Perhaps best know for her roles in Juno and I, Tonya, Lou will be the first film in which Janney will get to partake in bouts of brutal violence onscreen.

The plot follows Lou, a tough, uncompromising woman who reluctantly steps up when a desperate mother begs her for help in finding her kidnapped daughter. As a massive storm rages, the two women risk their lives on a rescue mission that will test their limits and expose dark and shocking secrets from their pasts.

Janney stars as Lou, alongside Jurnee Smollett.

Former cinematographer Anna Foerster directs from a screenplay by Maggie Cohn and Jack Stanley, from Cohn’s story,

Lou is due to be released via Netflix on the 23rd September. You can see the first stills from the film over at Deadline. Watch the trailer below…
