After suffering a serious injury during the shoot of the forthcoming Maze Runner production, it’s great to see Dylan O’Brien back on the big screen, taking on the lead role in American Assassin, opposite Michael Keaton.
We asked the talented young actor about his return, and whether he had any apprehensions about taking on another role that requires a physical performance and various stunts. We also spoke about the collaborative process with Keaton, and the sad pertinence to this tale.
When Cold War veteran Stan Hurley takes CIA black ops recruit Mitch Rapp under his wing, they receive an assignment to investigate a wave of random attacks on both military and civilian targets. After discovering a pattern of violence, Hurley and Rapp join forces with a lethal Turkish agent to stop a mysterious operative who wants to start a global war.
American Assassin is released on September 14th.
