Sanaa Lathan may be currently winning over fans left and right with her FOX crime drama, ‘Shots Fired,’ but that hasn’t stopped the actress from continuing to add notches to her extensive movie resume. The newest entry will come via ‘American Assassin’ – a film adaptation of author Vince Flynn‘s bestseller of the same name.
Directed by Michael Cuesta and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Nick Wechsler, the film:
“…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 in the Middle East.” [source]
