Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, has a keen eye for producing action films and after making massive TentPoles Like Transformers and GI Joe he’s trying a new experiment that might just be the birth of a new franchise. American Assassin tells the Story of A CIA black ops recruit, Mitch Rapp (O’Brien), is devastated by the loss of his girlfriend to a terrorist attack.
CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Lathan) assigns Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Keaton) to train a grief-stricken but highly motivated Rapp how to thwart terrorist operations and hunt the perpetrators. Together they investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on military and civilian targets and discover a pattern in the violence that leads them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Kitsch) intent on starting a world war in the Middle East.
The film has a Borne Ultimatum meets Bond feel to it and director Micheal Cuesta ( directed many episodes of homeland) manages to keep the pace tight and the action engaging . Based on the very successful book the film has a built in fan base.
The film stars Dylan O brain from Maze runner and has Taylor Kitch as his antagonist . Taylor who was fading away from Hollywood after his 2 disasters John Carter and Battleship might have finally found his space. He’s terrific as Ghost. The film also stars Micheal Keaton who’s phenomenal as always
Distributed by CBS Films and Lionsgate the film might just be a surprise hit when it opens in September this year.
