Underworld franchise staris returning to the action realm, playing a woman with extreme anger management issues in the Amazon film Jolt.
"My character, Lindy, is someone who since childhood has had an impulse control problem whereby she has a very difficult time not acting out and behaving badly when under pressure," says Beckinsale. "She is in a weird spot in her life where she is living in an apartment where she's not got any things that she can throw and no knives and forks. She was a bouncer, and got fired, and is just desperate. She finds this experimental therapist who rigs her up with this sort of electrically-shocking vest, which is a sort of turbo equivalent of an elastic band on the wrist, that works with varying degrees of success. As part of her therapy, she goes on a date and really gets on with the guy, and then he's murdered. She's understandably upset and pissed off and tries to figure out what's happened and gets into a lot of scraps!"

Kate Middleton and Prince William Roll Up to Drive-In Movie in Prince Philip's Vintage Land Rover
Prince William's grandfather, who died last month, was a well-known lover of the car brandThe royal couple arrived at an outdoor screening of the new Disney movie Cruella on Wednesday in a 2A Land Rover from 1966 that once belonged to Prince William's late grandfather Prince Philip. Queen Elizabeth's husband, well known by his Duke of Edinburgh title, died on April 9 at the age of 99.
"Tanya had done a very cute little movie with Zoey Deutch," says Beckinsale, referring to Wexler's 2019 film Buffaloed, which co-starred Jai Courtney. "She had a really nice take on Jolt. We were very aligned on what we wanted out of it. Lindy is a very flawed character, but also you root for her, because there is a wish-fulfillment side to the fact that she's got no inhibitions about her anger. There's a small scene where some guy is like, 'Cheer up, love,' and she just pushes his face into a wall. We've all had that urge! Lindy's just a great character. I love the mix of comedy and action and female rage. It seemed very timely."
Jolt co-stars David Bradley (Game of Thrones) and Ori Pfeffer. EW can reveal that Amazon is releasing the film on July 23.
