From his odd mistimed bizarre ‘Green Card’ joke at The Oscars Sean Penn delivers a big to trigger happy stress buster in the new second trailer for The Gunman.
It was blatantly obvious Penn last night either didn’t wanted to be at the Awards or was pissed off he was last to present an award despite been the big one…
The Gunman is based on Jean-Patrick Manchette’s 2002 novel “The Prone Gunman,” Penn plays Jim Terrier former Special ops turned former gun for hire driven out of retirement. Whilst attempting to reconnect with his first love he must go on the run from his former employers cue the action.
With Bryan Mills now longer using those particular set of skill Jim Terrier is looking the perfect man to pass the baton too. The Gunman you wouldn’t have seen as a logical career choice for Sean Penn but compared to Taken this has potential pulling power from the director Pierre Morel (the best of the trilogy). Plus a cast of heavyweight names Javier Bardem, Idris Elba, Ray Winstone, make this one a little more intriguing but will Penn convince us as legitimate action star?
The Gunman also stars Mark Rylance and Jasmine Trinca with the film arriving in UK&Ireland 20th March.
