Dylan O’Brien leads the charge as Mitch Rapp in upcoming movie American Assassin; a CIA black ops recruit who’s working under the instruction of a Cold War veteran, Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). When enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate attacks on both military and civilian targets, it soon becomes apparent that there’s a pattern in the violence, leading the three onto a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent played by Shiva Negar. When they go up against a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) who’s intent on starting a World War in the Middle East, however, they realise they’re facing one of the biggest challenges the world has ever seen. Check out a newly-released second trailer for the film below:
Directed by Michael Cuesta, the film promises to be an entertaining and addictive, edge-of-your-seat ride. Based on the novel of the same name, American Assassin is just one of 15 novels set in the world of the character, Mitch Rapp. If successful, we can be sure to see a lot more from Rapp on the big screen in the coming years; there’s certainly no shortage of material available.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Nick Wechsler are producing the movie.
American Assassin hits cinemas across the UK on September 15, 2017.
