American Assassin is an American action thriller movie released in 2017 directed by Michael Cuesta that features Dylan O’Brien, Michael Keaton, Sanaa Lathan, Shiva Negar, and Taylor Kitsch. The movie is based on the novel published in 2010 of the exact title by Vince Flynn. It was penned by Stephen Schiff along with Michael Finch, Edward Zwick, and Marshall Herskovitz. The story follows a newly recruited CIA black ops named Mitch Rapp, who assists a Cold War veteran attempt to end the explosion of a miscreant nuclear weapon.

It obtained mixed responses from movie reviewers, who called the plot lackluster and too mainstream. Despite the critical reviews, some fans are still awaiting a sequel to the American Assassin but at this point, the future seems uncertain as it’s over four years and yet there are no updates from the producers or the filmmakers regarding a new movie.

Just moments after Mitch’s proposal to girlfriend Katrina, a group of Jihadists invades the beach and starts firing on the civilians. Amid the chaos, Mitch attempts to find Katarina, but his now-fiancee is shot dead by the terrorists. Eighteen months after the tragic event, Mitch vows to take revenge and trains himself rigorously to take down the terrorists who killed his fiancee. 


Is American Assassin 2 In The Works?


Unfortunately, no. American Assassin 2 is not in the works nor will the fans get to see a sequel to this movie. There have been no concrete details and nothing is confirmed for now but still, we can’t have high hopes just yet. Nevertheless, it seems like the filmmakers are also not interested in making another movie as the first movie American Assassin didn’t do well at the box office and as a result, they see no point in continuing the story further. 


American Assassin 2 Release Date: When Is It?


It’s difficult to predict a release date because the filmmakers are yet to provide an official update on whether or not there’ll be a sequel to American Assassin. On the off chance, if a sequel comes to light, fans are expected to see the new movie sometime in 2024.
