News About "American Assassin"

This movie is based on a book series featuring Mitch Rapp, written by Vince Flynn. No stranger to struggle himself, Flynn began his writing career as a part time hobby and self-published his first book, Term Limits. His success as a New York Times Best Selling Author is even more remarkable considering he was diagnosed with dyslexia as a child and found reading and writing to be a challenge. Penning 15 books, Flynn passed away after a lengthy battle with prostate cancer in 2013.

The movie American Assassin is being produced by Lionsgate and CBS Films. Starring Dylan O'Brien as Mitch Rapp, the film is reminiscent of the Jason Borne franchise. A Red-band trailer has been released to promote the film, meaning it features content too explicit to be shown to all audiences. That means the movie will likewise have strong content, and will likely garner an R rating from the MPAA.

Expect frequent violent acts and non-stop action in this story about an injured soul who has experienced the loss of his parents and his finance. Channeling that anger to a better cause, Rapp becomes a Black Op for the CIA and trains to take out terrorist and traitors alike.
