Check out the poster for Anton Corbijn‘s new film The American starring George Clooney as Jack, a hitman who is hiding out in Italy on his last assignment.
Alone among assassins, Jack ( Clooney) is a master craftsman. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact that his next assignment will be his last. Jack reports to the Italian countryside, where he holes up in a small town and relishes being away from death for a spell. The assignment, as specified by a Belgian woman, Mathilde (Thekla Reuten of “In Bruges”), is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto (Italian stage and screen veteran Paolo Bonacelli) and pursues romance with local woman Clara (Italian leading lady Violante Placido). But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.
The film also stars Violante Placido, Thekla Reuten, Paolo Bonacelli and Bruce Altman. The script was written by Rowan Joffe (Last Resort, 28 Weeks Later) and is based on Martin Booth’s novel A Very Private Gentleman.
The American, filmed in Italy and Sweden, planned to hit the theaters on September 1st 2010.
