Dylan O’Brien and four other key members of the cast of the upcoming American Assassin (a cast which included Michael Keaton, Taylor Kitsch, Sanaa Lathan and Shiva Negar) have been graced with their own character posters for the project which you can see below.
The Michael Cuesta directed American Assassin is an adaptation of one of the fifteen novels which comprise Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp franchise which follows Mitch. Mitch played here by The Maze Runner and Deepwater Horizon actor Dylan O’Brien from the beginning of his career as a fresh-faced, doey-eyed CI black ops recruit who has been taken under the wing of the surly Cold War veteran Stan Hurley who is played by Michael Keaton.
After debuting its first official trailer a month ago where we witnessed Mitch piecing together his memories of losing his parents at 14 O’Brien’s Mitch becomes angry at the loss of his girlfriend to a terrorist attack on a beach just after proposing which drives his inspiration in taking on the instruction of Keaton’s Stan Hurley at what can only be described at a deadly school for assassins after being sent there by the CIA.
Each individual poster sports a black and white image of each character with a splash of red to represent the blood that is about to be spilled in this dark thriller.
American Assassin is in cinemas September 15th
