Taraji P. Henson is Mary, a hit woman working for an organized crime family in Boston, whose life is completely turned around when she meets a young boy whose path she crosses when a professional hit goes bad.
Henson became involved with the movie in January 2017, before Proud Mary had found a director. Helmsman Babak Najafi signed on to call the shots in February 2017, before principal photography started in April of that year. The title of the film seems to be taken from the song “Proud Mary,” which was originally recorded by Credence Clearwater Revival in 1969. Tina Turner did a cover version in 1988, which was used in the trailer for Proud Mary.
