Kevin James stars in trailer for True Memoirs of an International Assassin

Posted on


Kevin James has graduated from patrolling malls and is now taking on drug lords.

In the trailer for Netflix’s original film, True Memoirs of an International Assassin, the Paul Blart star plays Sam Larsen, an accountant and aspiring author. His fictional novel about Ghost, an international assassin, finally gets published and becomes a huge success, but there’s just one problem — it’s being advertised as a work of nonfiction.

While the white lie by his publisher helps him with the ladies, it soon finds him being kidnapped and taken by international drug lords, who want his help in an assassination plot. With the help of a real government agent (Zulay Henao), Larsen tries to channel Ghost, learning, among other things, that sometimes it can be good to bring a knife to a gunfight.

Watch the trailer above.
