Based on the novel by Vince Flynn, American Assassin tells the story of a deadly CIA hired gun. Mitch Rapp played by Dylan O’Brian, was an ordinary civilian looking forward to married life before getting caught in the middle of a terrorist attack that kills his fiancé.
Feeling devasted and filled with thoughts of revenge, he becomes a CIA recruit and begins special training to become a lethal killing machine and black ops counterterrorism agent. Michael Keaton also stars as a Cold War veteran and training officer who must prepare Rapp for a special covert mission in the Middle East.
The trailer to American Assassin looks amazing. It’s an action thriller and a character driven film. It presents a portrait of a man driven by rage and looking for retribution. Directed by Michael Cuesta, American Assasins is currently in post production and will be released later this year in September.
