Sam Larson has a very particular set of skills; skills that make him a nightmare to anyone that dares trifle with him. At least, that’s what the masthead of True Memoirs of an International Assassin would have you believe.
You see, in Netflix’s latest original project, that’s the debut work of non-fiction published by Kevin James’ mild-mannered author. The only problem is that the novel becomes an overnight success after it’s mistaken as a true-life biopic, leaving James’ protagonist with little choice but to put the ‘true’ in True Memoirs of an International Assassin.
Hailing from director Jeff Wadlow, the bonkers actioner has today unveiled its first clip ahead of a planned premiere on November 11. In it, we see Sam Larson fumble his way through a tense standoff – thanks to the help of Zulay Henao’s actual contract killer – and if you’re a fan of James’ brand of oafish comedy, Wadlow’s picture looks to have that over-the-top humor in spades.
Kevin James will indulge in the True Memoirs of an International Assassin in the most outrageous way possible when Jeff Wadlow and Netflix’s picture makes its debut via the online streamer on November 11. Maurice Compte, Zulay Henao and Andy Garcia round out the cast.
The action comedy stars Kevin James as Sam Larson, a mild-mannered would-be author who gets mistaken for a killer-for-hire when his fictional novel about an international assassin is published as a true story. When the book is a huge success, he is suddenly kidnapped, taken out of the country, and forced into an assassination plot. On Netflix November 11.
