Katie Holmes had to learn how to handle a gun for new movie role

2014-12-17 12:33

Los Angeles - Katie Holmes had to learn how to shoot a gun for Miss Meadows.

The 35-year-old actress really enjoyed playing the titular character in her latest movie - which tells the story of a teacher who moonlights as a vigilante - partly because she got to handle a powerful weapon.

She said: Miss Meadows is a new character for me because she's kind of funny - a substitute teacher who turns into a vigilante when she sees a child being harmed.

Take a peek at Holmes kicking ass in this trailer:

"She was fun to play - plus, I learned how to shoot a gun."

Katie - who has eight-year-old daughter Suri Cruise with ex-husband Tom Cruise - admits she is pleased to be back on the big screen after a few years off, and is "excited" about what other acting roles she might be offered in the future.

She added to HELLO! magazine: "Work ebbs and flows but I have been fortunate recently to have more projects come my way.

"And because my child is growing up, I have a bit more time to focus on my work - and I'm excited about it."
