Lionsgate's action thriller THE PROTÉGÉ boasts a great cast with Maggie Q, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton and Robert Patrick. Directed by veteran action filmmaker Martin Campbell (CASINO ROYALE, THE LEGEND OF ZORRO), THE PROTÉGÉ should deliver with Maggie Q in the lead along with Michael Keaton.
Anne (Maggie) is an assassin protégé to Samuel L. Jackson's Moody after he rescued her as a child. Moody's death sends Anne on a revenge mission to find the killers. She encounters another contract killer (Keaton) who stands in her way, but luckily he's got a soft spot for Anne.
THE PROTÉGÉ is in theaters on August 20.
Rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody (Samuel L. Jackson) and trained in the family business, Anna (Maggie Q) is the world’s most skilled contract killer. But when Moody – the man who was like a father to her and taught her everything she needs to know about trust and survival – is brutally killed, Anna vows revenge. As she becomes entangled with an enigmatic killer (Michael Keaton) whose attraction to her goes way beyond cat and mouse, their confrontation turns deadly and the loose ends of a life spent killing will weave themselves even tighter.
