It was written by Stephen Schiff, who adapted it from the novel written by Vince Flynn. Directed by Michael Cuesta (12 and Holding, Tell Tale, Roadie, Kill the Messenger), the cast includes Dylan O'Brien, Michael Keaton, Taylor Kitsch, Sanaa Lathan, Scott Adkins, David Suchet, and Shiva Negar. Anything that features Adkins desires some attention, as he always delivers some excellent action sequences. It will be released in theaters on September 15, 2017. Check out the synopsis and trailer below.
"AMERICAN ASSASSIN follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (O’Brien), a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Keaton). The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East."
