Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds are an unlikely pair to fight off assassins trailing their every move in the upcoming film The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which is scheduled to be released on August 18th. Directed by Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3) and written by Tom O’Connor (Fire with Fire), the thriller shows off stellar action sequences and some witty dialogue in its second newly release trailer.
The plot is fairly simple as a bodyguard (Reynolds) has to transport an assassin (Jackson) to testify at trial to take down a dictator (Gary Oldman). What ensues is gunfights, car chases, hand-to-hand combat, and laughs galore. The film also stars Salma Hayek (Sausage Party) and Elodie Yung (Daredevil). The script for the film was on the 2011 Black List of the best un-produced scripts and is being distributed by Lionsgate Studios.
