Star Mary Elizabeth Winstead stated in her Entertainment Weekly interview:
“Kate is an unscrupulous assassin who has a job in Tokyo and is poisoned in the process. She finds out she has 24 hours to live before the poison kills her, so she goes on a mission to find out who poisoned her and kill her before she dies. She makes this connection with this teenage girl named Ani along the way, and they take on this mission together. It’s a heartfelt, brutal assassin story! “

Director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan commented on the collaboration with Harrelson:

What is the production status of Kate?
Filming for Netflix Kate is finished and the film is now in post-production. Many action scenes were filmed, including one that, according to director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, was the toughest action set piece that could be filmed. It was a close duel between Winstead’s hit-man and a similarly dangerous character, the Japanese actor and musician Miyavi.
“The hardest one to photograph was the one with Mary and Miyavi in the apartment. We couldn’t do that with stunt doubles, so they had to do it themselves. You had two actors doing very, very tight stunt work. We thought something bad could happen. This definitely made me nervous. “
