AMERICAN ASSASSIN: Dylan O’Brien Is On A Mission Of Vengeance In The First Official Teaser
The marketing for director Michael Cuesta’s latest thriller, American Assassin, wasn’t without its fair share of brouhaha over some of the intial artwork. Thankfully it wasn’t a huge page turner and it shouldn’t have a huge effect on the film’s overall delivery if it manages to win over a sizeable enough crowd for franchise potential with actor Dylan O’Brien (Maze Runner trilogy) leading the way.
AMERICAN ASSASSIN 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. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.
