Fresh off of making us laugh with his participation in The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting skit in the post-Oscar The Jimmy Kimmel Show last night, Penn is rocking in a whole different way today.
The trailer for The Gunman has landed and it finds Penn as a hired assassin who finds himself on the run when his boss (Javier Bardem, soon to be seen in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) frames him and turns his life upside down.
The Gunman is actually the rare moment in Penn’s decorated career where the Oscar winner has been part of an action movie. And as you can see in the below trailer, he gets into plenty of action!
Penn and Bardem are joined in the stellar cast by Ray Winstone, Idris Elba and Mark Rylance. Look for The Gunman in theaters March 20.
