The first trailer for the film adaptation of Vince Flynn’s novel “American Assassin” is set to go online tomorrow and the first tease of it has gone online today.
Attempting to launch a franchise along “Jack Reacher” lines, this is based on one of fifteen novels about Mitch Rapp, an undercover CIA operative fighting terrorism. Should it perform well, expect sequels in the not too distant future.
“The Maze Runner” star Dylan O’Brien plays Rapp with Michael Keaton as his handler Stan Hurley, Sanaa Lathan as his boss Irene Kennedy and Taylor Kitsch as the film’s villain who is trying to kick off a third World War in the Middle East.
“American Assassin” opens in cinemas on September 15th 2017.
