Directed by Michael Cuesta, new movie American Assassin will follow the rise of CIA Black Ops recruit Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), who’s working under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). Enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate what look to be a series of random attacks on civilian and military targets, the film looks to be a chaotic, emotional and action-packed ride.
Together, all three will discover a pattern in the violence taking place, which leads them into a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar), with all four intent on taking down a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) whose only plans are to start a World War in the Middle East. You can check out the brilliant first-look trailer for the upcoming movie below:
