Rhona Mitra The Last Ship
Rhona Mitra has been doing a series of interviews to promote the second season of “The Last Ship”. Rhona stars as the pragmatic Dr. Rachel Scott, who is attempting to find a cure for a disease spreading around the world. The show is produced by Michael Bay of Transformers fame.
It’s yet another role for Mitra that sees her playing a tough character. Her combination of beauty and toughness have played well in a number of films and TV shows including: Doomsday, Strike Back and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.
Rhona talks about her character’s obsession with finding a cure and the sometimes extreme lengths she is willing to go to!

Rhona Mitra Expendabelles
There is a lot of gossip surrounding the casting of the upcoming film “Expendabelles”. The movie is a spin-off from the popular “The Expendables” film, featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham and many other action-film stars.
The twist is that the ExpendaBelles will feature female leads. There is not much information about the film on the IMDB page just yet and the cast is mostly unknown.
Some of the rumored stars of the movie include Gina Carano and “Kick Ass” and Michelle Rodriguez from “Fast & Furious”. Some of the rumors have included older female stars who have had great parts in action movies in the past. Sigourney Weaver from the Aliens movies and Linda Hamilton from the Terminator series would be great additions.
Of course, our own Rhona Mitra has been mentioned as a potential star of the movie. Given her experience in Tomb Raider and Doomsday, she would be an ideal choice for an action hero!
Other names mentioned for the movie include Geena Davis, Sandra Bullock, Sharon Stone, Milla Jovovich and even Meryl Streep!
The plot for the movie:
When America’s Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world’s top nuclear scientists, it becomes clear that there is no such thing as the right man for the job and that this is a mission so impossible that only women can handle it. The only way in: some of the world’s deadliest female operatives must pose as high-class call-girls shipped in by private plane to satisfy a dictator . and instead save the scientist and the day.
A trailer has been released for a new film starring Rhona Mitra. “The Loft” is set to be released in early 2015 and features Rhona Mitra as “Allison”.
The film is an R-rate thriller about five friends who find a dead body. The find leads them to conflict with each other and a thrilling conclusion!
The film also stars Wentworth Miller from the hit TV series Prison Break, James Marsden and Karl Urban.
Rhona Mitra Red Carpet Pictures
Rhona Mitra made a recent appearance at the red carpet premiere of the new movie “Up in the Air”. The premiere was held in Los Angeles at the Mann Village Theatre.
The movie stars George Clooney, Anna Kendrick, Jason Bateman and Danny McBride, and will be in cinemas from December 25.
The movie synopsis:
Ryan Bingham is a corporate downsizing expert whose cherished life on the road is threatened just as he is on the cusp of reaching ten million frequent flyer miles and just after he’s met the frequent-traveler woman of his dreams.
On a recent poll conducted on The Geek Files with under 6,000 votes cast, Rhona Mitra ranks 4th as the possible bet for the next Lara Croft role in the planned revamp of Tomb Raider.
Rhona Mitra received 9% of the total votes, beaten by Erica Durance (Lois Lane, Smallville) who had 14% of the votes, Kristin Kreuk (Lana Lang, Smallville, Chun-Li, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li) with 23% of the votes, and the top-ranker, Summer Glau (Terminator Cameron – Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, River Tam – Firefly, Serenity) with 28%.
Rhona Mitra has offically played as Lara Croft on promotional appearances. Chances that the Underworld star, Rhona Mitra, playing as Lara Croft is growing dimmer today after the results.
Rhona Mitra was recently seen leaving a Beverly Hills Salon with a male friend! Mitra has just filming a new comedy to be released soon.
IN January, Warner Bros and producer Dan Lin announced plans to relaunch the Tomb Raider series. Lin has now told “About.com” a bit more about the franchise reboot: “It’s a great origin story that we’re going to tell. A very character-oriented, I would say more realistic, [film] than the past Lara Croft movies.”
“It is an origin story so it is a younger Lara Croft. I would say it’s like Terminator – character-driven action. I think for me the Lara Croft games and movies have gone a little too action-oriented. I wanted to have action, but with character. You want to honor the existing mythology but at the same time bring in new fans.”
So of course our mind wanders to cast, and Rhona Mitra fans know that Rhona is THE perfect Tomb Raider star. She has the body, the accent, the talent to pull off Tomb Raider with ease. Other rumors have included Summer Glau from Firefly/The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Megan Fox from Transformers.
I would LOVE to see Mitra get the role, just like she ‘fixed’ the bad reputation of the Underworld series, she could fix Tomb Raider.
Well I am a few months late in posting this news, but all is slow on the Rhona Mitra news front at the moment. Earlier this year, Rhona Mitra did an interview for goth girl site “Suicide Girls”. Suicide girls showcases super hot goth girls (with tatts/piercings) and talks about music and films, pretty cool site.
You can read the interview in full here.
Rhona Mitra is currently at Waltham Abbey to shoot scenes for a new British comedy! Other actors appearing in the film include Bridget Jones-star James Callis, and Hugh O’Conor, who appeared in the Oscar-nominated Chocolat. The film is directed by Bafta-nominated Yoav Factor.
The film is titled “Re-Uniting The Rubins”, and will feature the story of a dysfunctional Jewish family.
Lenny Rubin, played by Spall, is about to retire and take a cruise around the world when he is roped in to fulfilling his mother’s last wish to heal the rift between her squabbling children who are made up of a megalomaniac businessman, an eco warrior, a rabbi and a Buddhist.
The Underworld 3 bluray and DVD movie release is just around the corner, so don’t forget to snap up a copy. In celebration of the event (and because there isn’t any other Rhona Mitra news). Here are a few of my favourite Rhona Mita pictures. Enjoy!
