There have already been a couple of trailers for Sean Penn’s swerve into Liam-Neeson-in-Taken-style action thrillers with The Gunman, courtesy of the franchise’s own Pierre Morel. Here comes the third example ahead of the movie’s arrival in March.

Penn plays Jim Terrier, a former special forces-type still haunted by the things he did when he was on active duty. And one particular mission is itching at his conscience, a job that was supposed to help people, but ended up more in tragedy than triumph.

So when he decides to find out what really happened, he becomes the target of his former fellow shooters and bosses, with the likes of Mark Rylance, Idris Elba and Javier Bardem clouding the picture with different degrees of sinisterness. Ray Winstone, his old mucker, and his girlfriend Jasmine Trinca are probably going to regret getting involved.

With a script by Don MacPherson and Pete Travis adapting Jean-Patrick Manchette’s novel, The Gunman blasts its way over here on March 20.
