Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “American Assassin tells the origin story of CIA super agent Mitch Rapp. Long before he was a terrorist’s worst nightmare and before he was quietly loathed and publically lauded by the politicians on Capital Hill, Mitch Rapp was a gifted college athlete without a care in the world, but then tragedy struck. Following this misfortune, Rapp was resurrected from the ashes and recruited to a new life in the nation’s most elite covert operations program. Now he is a man reborn with a mission of retribution, a ruthless hunter of terrorists for the CIA.
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), who would be the most feared training officer in the CIA, if more than a handful of people at the agency actually knew of his existence.
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 3 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.”
based on the 11th book in the Mitch Rapp novel series American Assassin by Vince Flynn
