Ahead of its world premiere at the Austin Film Festival, the poster for 24 Hours to Live, the upcoming action thriller from the producers of John Wick, has been released online. Directed by Brian Smrz, the film stars Ethan Hawke, Xu Qing, Liam Cunningham, Rutger Hauer, and Paul Anderson in this action thriller about an assassin with only 24 hours to complete a job before he dies.
“Travis Conrad (Ethan Hawke) is a former elite soldier devastated over the recent tragic deaths of his wife and young son, when his old army buddy “Jim Morrow” (Paul Anderson) shows up with an offer he can’t refuse. Morrow now works for a powerful and highly secretive private military contractor, Red Mountain, who hires Travis for an extremely dangerous – but extremely lucrative – assassination job. Travis accepts the covert assignment, but everything goes completely wrong when he is shot and killed by an equally skilled female Interpol agent, “Lin Bisset” (Xu Qin) right at the moment he locates the target. But, just when we think it’s curtains for Travis, he wakes up in an operating room, his body convulsing back to life – a recipient of Red Mountain’s brand new, highly experimental medical procedure that will give him 24 more hours of life… plenty of time for Morrow to extract the location of the target, information that only Travis knows.”
24 Hours to Live is set for release on December 1st.
