After handing out the award for Best Picture last night, Sean Penn is back today in the secondm quick trailer for The Gunman, the latest thriller from Taken director Pierre Morel. Penn just happens to be getting some flack today for saying "Who gave this son of a bitch his green card?" when he handed an Oscar to Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, but the filmmaker knew it was a harmless joke. However, Penn certainly isn't messing around in what could be a whole new phase to his career. However, not every aging actor can follow the same trajectory as Liam Neeson did, though it's sometimes entertaining to see them try. Watch?
Here's the quick new trailer for Pierre Morel's The Gunman from YouTube:
You can still watch the first US trailer for The Gunman right here.
The Gunman is directed by Pierre Morel (Taken, From Paris with Love, District B13) and written by Don MacPherson (of 1998's spy adventure The Avengers), based on Jean-Patrick Manchette's The Prone Gunman novel. Sean Penn stars in the film as Martin Terrier, a former Special Forces soldier and military contractor who works peacefully for a non-government organization in the Congo. But Terrier gets drawn back into his violent past. The cast includes Javier Bardem, Idris Elba, Ray Winstone and British stage actor Mark Rylance, and Open Road Films is set to release the film in theaters next spring March 20th, 2015.
