AceShowbiz - The first-look pictures of Academy Award-nominated actor Michael Keaton as CIA training officer Stan Hurley in "American Assassin" have finally made their way out online. He can be seen taking aim with his gun in one of several new images which are debuted by USA Today.
Another photo shows Hurley along with his trainee Mitch Rapp (Dylan O'Brien) and two characters who are played by Shiva Negar and Nej Adamson. The rest of the images also feature other characters including Sanaa Lathan's Irene Kennedy and the movie's villain that will be played by Taylor Kitsch.
"American Assassin" follows Mitch Rapp who is a gifted college scholar/athlete long before he begins hunting terrorists. A tragedy struck and he is recruited into the nation's most elite covert operations program. After completing training designs to teach the kind of lethal skills necessary to target the most dangerous enemies, here and abroad, he is a man reborn with a mission of retribution.
