International Trailer: “American Assassin”

CBS Films and Lionsgate have unveiled a new international trailer for “American Assassin,” the film adaptation of Vince Flynn’s novel. The story 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 tied to a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) and a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.

Stephen Schiff, Michael Finch, Edward Zwick & Marshall Herskovitz penned the adaptation which is helmed by “Kill the Messenger” director Michael Cuesta and opens September 15th.
