After a brutal accident on the set of the last installment of The Maze Runner trilogy, which proved to be quite scary, Dylan O’Brien is back on the big screen. The young actor is starring in American Assassin, based on Vince Flynn’s 2010 novel of the same name. Directed by Michael Cuesta (Kill the Messenger), the film also stars Michael Keaton, Sanaa Lathan, Shiva Negar, and Taylor Kitsch.
American Assassin hits theaters on September 15th, 2017.
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.
