Netflix has announced the full cast for their upcoming action/comedy original feature “True Memoirs of an International Assassin” from PalmStar Media, Broken Road Productions and Global Film Group. Filming began in Atlanta in November and is scheduled to wrap next week in the Dominican Republic.
Funnyman Kevin James and Genesis Rodriguez (“Man on a Ledge”) lead the cast in the film which also stars Zulay Henao (“The Single Moms Club”), Andy Garcia (“Kill the Messenger”), Maurice Compte (“Narcos”), Kelen Coleman (“The McCarthy’s”), Andrew Howard (“Taken 3”), Rob Riggle (“22 Jump Street”), Leonard Earl Howze (“Memphis Beat”), Yul Vazquez (“The Lottery”) and Kim Coates (“Sons of Anarchy”).
James plays a mild-mannered would-be author who gets mistaken for a hitman-for-hire when his fictional novel about an international assassin is published as a true story. He is suddenly kidnapped and taken to Venezuela and forced into an assassination plot.
Jeff Wadlow (“Kick Ass 2”) helms the film from a script he co-wrote with Jeff Morris. The film will have its premiere on the streaming service later this year.
