Israeli directors Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, the duo behind Big Bad Wolves, are certainly swinging for the fences with their next project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s a movie “in the assassin genre” that takes place across multiple generations and is being “envisioned” with an all-female cast that’s lead by Karen Gillan from Guardians Of The Galaxy. That’s all good, but it gets better: The movie is called Gunpowder Milkshake, which is an awesome name, and it’s being pitched as Kill Bill crossed with Baby Driver. Essentially, it’s like someone said “make a movie that sounds cool as shit,” and these two guys said “yeah, sure.”

That’s about all we know at this point, but there’s enough there for us to contemplate. For instance, what the hell does Gunpowder Milkshake mean? Is it somebody’s cool nickname? And how do you tell a story that spans generations and also focuses on Karen Gillan? Will she play an old lady who assassinates people and also a younger lady who assassinates people? And what about this Baby Driver nod? Will there be cool pop music that also spans generations, so we’re following different cool assassin women who listen to cool music in different eras? We should stop, because otherwise we’re going to end up writing our own cool movie.
