Jim Terrier (Sean Penn – Gangster Squad, Mystic River) desperately tries to escape his murky past as THE GUNMAN shoots onto digital platforms from 13th July, 2015 and onto Blu-ray™ and DVD on 20th July 2015, courtesy of STUDIOCANAL.
Eight years after fleeing the Congo following his assassination of that country’s minister of mining, former hitman Terrier is left juggling his need to atone for a violent past with the debilitating reality of post traumatic stress disorder. After an attempt is made on his life, Terrier flies to London to find out who wants him dead – and why. His search leads him to a reunion with Annie (Jasmine Trinca – Saint Laurent), a woman he once loved, who is now married to a very shady businessman (Javier Bardem – Skyfall, No Country For Old Men) with dealings in Africa.
A slick, action-packed thriller, THE GUNMAN is directed by Pierre Morel (Taken), and features an all-star cast that, as well as heavyweights like Penn and Bardem, also includes Idris Elba (Pacific Rim, Luther), Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast, The Departed), and Mark Rylance (Blitz, Wolf Hall).
