Vince Flynn fans- American Assassin movie



IMDB

SIAP, I searched.

Just started reading Vince Flynn, so far I have to say pretty bad ass. Bruce Willis to play Stan Hurley is a solid choice.

Mitch Rapp

They are trying to get Chris Hemsworth to play Mtich, not sure I agree with this. I like him fine, but doesn't seem to fit. I don't really have anyone in mind that I would like to see, but my mental picture of Rapp doesn't look like Hemsworth.

Thoughts?

anyone but keifer sutherland plays mitch rapp i will be disappointed. i've read most of vince flynn's books and i always pictured mitch rapp as jack bauer.

Rapp is a young guy when he starts out, 21ish I think, I like Keifer but I think he would be to old.

Mitch Rapp

If you've read the books, you must realize that the guys is supposed to be able to pass just about anywhere in the Middle East/Central Asia because of his skin color and facial features.

Awesome.

I love the Mitch Rapp series. I don't like Hemsworth playing Mitch though. I can't really think of who I want to play him though.

Thats the issue. They describe him as having "olive skin and brown eyes," from what I remember.

Hemsworth just doesn't seem to be "it."

I read this suggestion for a Mitch Rapp actor on here a while ago, but Vinnie Chase (Adrian Grenier).

He is perfect for it IMO. Right height, slim (add some muscle for the role). And skin color is dead on. They will probably pick a more prestigious actor that is completely wrong for the character (ala Tom Cruise being Jack Reacher).

I could definitely see it. If he shaves his jew fro and puts on some muscle, I think Grenier would have at least the look of Mitch Rapp down.

They're all good but term limits is the best.

Yes I know Rapp isn't in that one but other characters from the series are.

Term Limits gives me a chubby in light of today's political scene.

Rainbow Six needs it's own movie first.

That novel is so bad ass.

Rainbow six is good but doesn't beat having your protagonist sniping senators, targeting the president with stingers, etc. to bring about reform in dc.

This is badass. Love those books.

I agree with the comments about who should play Rapp. Needs to be someone who "looks" the part. Vinnie Chase would be awesome.

Surprised me in Price of Persia, he would work, still don't think he would be the best fit though.
