Dylan O’Brien Lets Bullets Fly in ‘American Assassin’ Red Band Trailer (Video)

Michael Keaton co-stars in thriller based on Vince Flynn’s best-selling novel

Mitch Rapp is about to arrive on the big screen, as Lionsgate and CBS Films unveiled the red band trailer for “American Assassin” on Tuesday.

Based on the best-selling novel by Vince Flynn, the film stars Dylan O’Brien as Mitch Rapp, a CIA black ops recruit out for revenge. Impressed by his raw skills, CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) puts him under the wing of grizzled veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton), and after a round of grueling training, sends them both into the field to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets.

Eventually, the three uncover a pattern connecting the attacks together and, with the help of a Turkish agent named Annika (Shiva Negar), the team works to stop a rogue operative (Taylor Kitsch) who’s bent on plunging the world into war.

“American Assassin” is directed by Michael Cuesta and produced by by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Nick Wechsler. The film was by Stephen Schiff and Michael Finch and Edward Zwick & Marshall Herskovitz.

“American Assassin” hits theaters Sept. 15. Watch the red band trailer above.
