The Protégé is an upcoming action film staring Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, and Maggie Q. Directed by Martin Campbell and written by Richard Wenk, the film is produced by Arthur Sarkissian, Moshe Diamant, Rob Van Norden, Yariv Lerner, and Chris Milburn.
Earlier this month we were given our first look at the incredible poster for the film, with badass Maggie Q front and center.
The Protégé looks like a fun summer action flick. We are pretty excited to see this trio of actors all hit the big screen together! Check out the trailer below.
Rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody (Samuel L. Jackson) and trained in the family business, Anna (Maggie Q) is the world’s most skilled contract killer. But when Moody – the man who was like a father to her and taught her everything she needs to know about trust and survival – is brutally killed, Anna vows revenge. As she becomes entangled with an enigmatic killer (Michael Keaton) whose attraction to her goes way beyond cat and mouse, their confrontation turns deadly and the loose ends of a life spent killing will weave themselves ever tighter.
The Protégé hits theaters on August 20, 2021.
