Sanna Lathan and Shiva Negar Join 'American Assassin'
Sanaa Lathan and Shiva Negar have joined CBS Films and Lionsgate adaptation of VInce Flynn's bestselling novel, American Assassin. The actresses join Dylan O'Brien, Michael Keaton, and Taylor Kitsch.
The story follows Mitch Rapp's rise as a CIA black ops recruit under Cold War vet Stan Hurley. The pair is enlisted by the CIA to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on military and civilian targets alike.
“Vince Flynn created a universe populated by complex yet relatable characters who inspired millions of fans the world over,” said director Michael Cuesta. “To have an actress of Sanaa Lathan’s depth and intensity step into the role of Kennedy while simultaneously having the opportunity to introduce audiences to the extraordinary talent of Shiva Negar means that Flynn’s vision of powerful but believable individuals remains the foundation of ‘American Assassin’.”
