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.
