Jason Statham, Clive Owen, and Rober De Niro… I’m intrigued by Killer Elite just from reading that partial cast list. And I love the film’s simple to-the-point tagline: “When the hunter becomes the hunted, may the best man win.”
Here’s the scoop on the plot (which is based on a true story):
Killer Elite races across the globe from Australia to Paris, London and the Middle East in the action-packed account of an ex-special ops agent (Jason Statham) who is lured out of retirement to rescue his mentor (Robert De Niro). To make the rescue, he must complete a near-impossible mission of killing three tough-as-nails assassins with a cunning leader (Clive Owen).
Killer Elite will hit theaters on September 23, 2011.
