Shout! Studios has announced a Sept. 22 watch-at-home date for Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story, a new documentary directed by April Wright and narrated by Michelle Rodriguez.

Based on the best-selling book by Mollie Gregory, Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story introduces viewers to the female stunt performers who drive the action behind some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbuster movies, from the first black-and-white “flickers” to today’s high-tech mega epics.

Stuntwomen over the years have risked their lives in front of the camera, while fighting for equal rights with male stunt performers, battling sexism and harassment, and sometimes sustaining life-threatening injuries.

Some of the stunt performers interviewed include Jeannie Epper (Wonder Woman, Charlie’s Angels), Julie Ann Johnson (Caprice, Charlie’s Angels), Jadie David (Foxy Brown, Escape from L.A.), Donna Evans (Total Recall, The Italian Job), Debbie Evans (The Fast and the Furious, The Matrix Reloaded), Donna Keegan (True Lies, Scarface), Amy Johnston (Captain America: Winter Soldier, Suicide Squad), Alyma Dorsey (Captain Marvel, Birds of Prey), Heidi Moneymaker (Black Widow, Captain America: Civil War), Keisha Tucker (Black Panther, Birds of Prey), Jessie Graff (Wonder Woman, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Angela Meryl (Kill Bill Vol. 1, Skyfall), Cheryl Lewis (Orange is the New Black, Luke Cage), Jennifer Caputo (Jason Bourne, The Amazing Spider-Man), Kelly Roisin (Venom, Ant-Man), and Deven McNair (Green Lantern, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).
