In the trailer for the adaptation of Author Vince Flynn‘s Mitch Rapp Series, American Assassin, Dylan O’Brien comes face to face with tragedy and lives to seek revenge.
American Assassin is directed by Primetime Emmy award winning filmmaker Michael Cuesta from a screenplay by Michael Finch. The action-thriller brings together a star-studded cast, including Dylan O’Brien (Maze Runner, Teen wolf), Oscar award nominated Michael Keaton (Birdman), and Sanaa Lathan (Alien vs. Predator), to tell the story of a CIA black Ops recruit with nothing left to loose.
In an interview with the deputy director of the CIA, Mitch tells of the tragedy in his life. Having lost his parents at the age 14, and his fianceè in a beach terrorist attack only moments after his proposal, Rapp prepares to fight back.
“You gave up everything after that, didn’t you Mitch?” says CIA deputy director Irene Kennedy.
“No not everything,” he replies.
Reluctantly recruited by Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Keaton), Rapp is trained for a violent mission with lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a world war in the Middle East.
“He’s ready, Stan,” Kennedy insists.
“He’s not ready,” replies Hurley. “But he will be.”
American Assassin is set to hit theaters September 2017
