CBS films is behind this new I’ve-been-inducted-into-the-CIA-and-I-become-a-hero movie American Assassin. Led by Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) with Michael Keaton in the tried and true grizzled seasoned operative trainer guy role, there’s not one step in this trailer that hasn’t already been done to death 400 times before. Michael Cuesta (Kill The Messenger) directs.
Synopsis: 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.
