Well, it looks like the “American Assassin” movie is a go … AGAIN!
The Hollywood Reporter announced a director today. You can read the full report here.
While this is very exciting news, it leaves me with the “been there, done that” feeling. This movie, that CBS Films at the moment owns the rights to, was supposedly going to start shooting in the fall of 2013. It seems, after Vince’s passing, everything stopped and nothing was being done. Ask for an update, none were ever given. So, CBS Films had until the end of this April to get things moving, or the rights would have returned to the Flynn Estate. Well, it looks like they decided to proceed in making the movie.
So, while I AM excited for Mitch Rapp to finally being on the big screen, I am unfortunately not jumping for joy.
