The Protégé is an upcoming American action thriller film directed by Martin Campbell and written by Richard Wenk. The movie stars are Maggie Q as Anna Dutton, Michael Keaton as Rembrandt, Samuel L. Jackson as Moody Dutton, and Robert Patrick as Billy Boy.
The film is scheduled to release in theatres on August 20, 2021 by Lionsgate.
Anna is an assassin raised by Moody after he discovered her in the aftermath of a massacre in Saigon. For years, they have traversed across the globe and completed high-profile contracts. But when he is murdered, Anna must return to Vietnam to track down his killer, and, in the process, teams up with a mysterious figure from her past to bring the killer to justice.
As Anna 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.
So far, that’s what we know about The Protégé. Well, that and the fact that it comes out on August 20, as much as we’d love to have it sooner, we are more than willing to wait for it. We know it will be worth it.
