We got a new trailer fresh out the oven for you today. American Assassin stars Michael Keaton and Dylan O’Brien, and is currently scheduled for a September 15, 2017, release date.
In the film, O’Brien plays Mitch Rapp, a CIA recruit who is not having the best of luck. His parents died when he was 14, and moments after he proposed to his girlfriend on the beach, terrorists dropped in and killed her.
This leaves Rapp “grief-stricken but motivated to serve in a black ops mission aimed at stopping World War III in the Middle East.”
Michael Cuesta directed the movie. He has primarily worked in TV in the past. He’s been a director on Six Feet Under, True Blood, Homeland and Billions. We’re sure he’ll make a smooth transition to the feature world. He’s got years of experience.
In addition to Keaton and O’Brien, Taylor Kitsch and Sanaa Lathan will also co-star. You can check out the official synopsis and trailer below…
“Black ops recruit Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien) is reeling from the death of his fiancée in a terrorist attack when he is assigned to shadowy CIA figure Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton) to receive special training in tracking terrorists. Rapp and Hurley are then dispatched to join a Turkish agent on a mission to stop a mysterious operative from unleashing chaos of international proportions.”
