Sean Penn has a particular set of skills in his latest film, The Gunman—and a director who will know how to put them to good use.
In the first trailer for The Gunman, Sean Penn finally shows off his action movie chops in Taken director Pierre Morel’s new film. Yahoo originally debuted the trailer.
Penn plays a professional assassin named Martin Terrier who attempts to retire, but his former employers will stop at nothing to bring him back for one last mission that only he could accomplish.
The plot does sound a bit conventional, but the cast assembled for the film will hopefully alleviate some of the “been there, done that” feel. Penn is joined by Javier Bardem, Idris Elba, Ray Winstone, Mark Rylance, and Jasmine Trinca in the film, based off the French crime novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette.
