It’s been a while since we have had any news regarding American Assassin (directed by Michael Cuesta, who helmed the recent thriller Kill the Messenger), but now we have an official release date of September 15th to accompany all of those stills that were released a few months ago.
The film is based on Vince Flynn’s novel and contains a star-studded cast that includes Dylan O’Brien as Mitch Rapp alongsie Michael Keaton, Sanaa Lathan, and Taylor Kitsch. As of right now, the film’s only release date competition will be Sony’s Ice Age survival story The Solutrean.
AMERICAN ASSASSIN follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien) a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael 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.
