Usually found dashing around the sets of the Maze Runner movies, Dylan O'Brien is now looking to get into Jack Ryan territory with the first adaptation of Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp novels. The first trailer for American Assassin has arrived.

With Michael Cuesta in the director's chair, Stephen Schiff's script adapts Flynn's 2010 tome, which spins the clock back to Rapp's early days at the CIA. Actually, even before that: he's discovered after the woman he loves is killed during a terrorist attack. Sworn to destroy the people responsible, he's recruited by the agency, which thinks it can channel his tendencies into becoming a killer for the government.

For that, he'll need some training, and finds a mentor in Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton), a secretive, grizzled but still deadly Cold War veteran.

With Sanaa Lathan and Taylor Kitsch also in the cast, American Assassin has a 15 September release date in its sights.
