Sean Penn hasn’t made a whole lot of action movies in his career and from the looks of the first trailer from The Gunman, it was worth the wait to see one of the most talented actors of his generation bring the heat.
Penn plays an assassin who has decided to leave his evil ways behind when he finds love. Javier Bardem is his partner in crime, and doesn’t take the news of his retirement too well. In fact, he’s not going to let him quit.
The Gunman is from the director of the film you see when you watch Taken online and also stars Ray Winstone, Idris Elba and Mark Rylance.
Look for The Gunman in theaters March 20, 2015.
Open Road also released the film’s first stills. Check them out in the slideshow below.
