Kate Cast & Character Guide | Screen Rant

Netflix's action movie Kate stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and here's a complete guide to the film's cast and characters. The streaming service has leaned heavily into sci-fi and working with some major stars or filmmakers to bring passion projects to life, but the action genre is another favorite of Netflix's. Movies like The Old Guard and Extraction have brought stellar action to subscribers around the world, and Kate hopes to be the latest action-packed film to find a big audience.

Kate was written by Umair Aleem and directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (The Huntsman: Winter's War), and it was produced by Deadpool 2 director David Leitch and his producing partner Kelly McCormick (Atomic BlondeNobody). The movie follows a ruthless criminal named Kate who is poisoned and has less than 24 hours to live. Kate follows the titular assassin as she travels through Tokyo on her final mission trying to get revenge on those who did this to her, which involves forming some unexpected relationships along the way.
