Here’s an unlikely comedic duo, Sameul L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds, who would’ve thunk it right?
The famous spec script going around Hollywood for the past two years was The Hitman’s Bodyguard written by Tom O’connor, the script appeared on The Hit List, which is a yearly annual list comprised on the best spec scripts written from the previous year. The plot is just as the title suggest. Samuel L. Jackson plays a Hitman, the MOST WANTED Hitman in the world, he is paired with a former rival a Bodygaurd (That would be Ryan Reynolds), in order to take down a bigger baddie, played by Gary Oldman (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, “Harry Potter”).

The trailer for this looks like a slapstick, crude and bonkers fun, there’s nothing else to it to be honest, however the film is directed by Patrick Hughes (“Red Hill”, “The Expendables 3”), who is a great action director and for my money should direct “Suicide Squad 2” but that’s beside the point.
Anyway the film hits theaters August 18, 2017.
