American Assassin (O’Brien / Keaton) September 15

Post by WyldeMan on 10/05/16, 10:08 am

Dylan O’Brien is in negotiations to star alongside Michael Keaton in CBS Films’ “American Assassin,” which Lionsgate is shopping to foreign buyers in Cannes this week.

O’Brien, who is best known for his role in “The Maze Runner,” will play the title character (Mitch Rapp) in the project, which is being directed by “Kill the Messenger” helmer Michael Cuesta, from a screenplay penned Stephen Schiff. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Nick Wechsler are producing the pic.

Based on Vince Flynn’s novel, “American Assassin” follows a Cold War veteran (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. As the story begins, his deputy director tasks him with training a black ops recruit (O’Brien) devastated by the loss of his fiancée to a terrorist attack. The pair is eventually dispatched on a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent to stop a mysterious operative from starting World War III in the Middle East.

CBS Films and Lionsgate are co-financing the project, which begins lensing this summer.

Published by Atria Books and in paperback by Pocket Books, both imprints of Simon & Schuster, “American Assassin” is one of 14 novels set in the world of counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp. Each has been a New York Times bestseller, while the three most recent entries have been No. 1 on the New York Times charts. The series has sold nearly 20 million copies to date.

He's also transitioning out the teen genre with this film, so it's a real big step for his career.

He's got another movie coming up with Mark Wahlberg too. I guess he's injury is not that bad, he just needs time to heal.

You can never predict who ends up being the breakout star of a show.



Dylan, Jon Berenthal and Adam Driver are recent examples of that.

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.

This looks good. And again, Dylan looks perfectly fine in this. Was shot before or after his accident?

O'Brien was injured in March 2016 and they began filming Assassin six months later in September.

Because it's Keaton/Batman and Dylan who I think could be a good Nightwing now that I've seen him in this type of action and as an assassin. You guys need to drink what I'm drinking to get the full picture. Cool
