American Assassin is based on the #1 New York Times best selling novel by Vince Flynn released in 2010. 7 years later we are being treated to the big screen adaptation coming out on September 15th. American Assassin follows young Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien, “Maze Runner”) who lost his girlfriend in a terrorist attack that he ultimately is seeking revenge for. Enlisted into the CIA and into Black Ops, Mitch Rapp gets trained by Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton, “Spider-man: Homecoming”). Together they will investigate multiple attacks on military and civilian targets. Throughout the story they will discover the pattern leading them to a mysterious operative codenamed Ghost (Taylor Kitsh, “Lone Survivor”) whose goal is to start a world war in the middle east. Will Mitch Rapp and Stan Hurley be able to stop this man called Ghost? Or will Mitch’s want for revenge get in the way of the mission?
American Assassin is directed by Michael Cuesta (“Homelands”, “Dexter”) and we are promised to an action thriller movie. Which can only mean some intense heart pounding action, and a mystery slowly being peeled back throughout the course of this movie. American Assassin will hopefully keep you entertained and on the edge of your seat as we see the release on September 15th. Plus you can never do any wrong in seeing a Michael Keaton movie.
