American Assassin centres around Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien – The Maze Runner), once an ordinary all-American athlete and scholar, and an extremely gifted young man, but then his girlfriend was viciously killed in a terrorists plane crash.
He’s recruited by the CIA, becoming one of the best assassins they had ever seen. Revenge is in his mind on those terrorists who killed his girlfriend, and to make sure it never happens again. However, when given an assignment on Beirut, things go astray and Rapp must work to make things right without any CIA support…
I love the look of this so I’m very much looking forward to it.
