First Trailer for Netflix's 'True Memoirs of an International Assassin'
"Or… is it so beyond stupid, it's brilliant? He might actually be the real dude!" Netflix has debuted a trailer for a new comedy titled True Memoirs of an International Assassin, which they produced as a Netflix Original Film. Kevin James stars as an author named Sam Larson who gets mistaken for a killer-for-hire when his fictional novel about an international assassin is published as a true story. The concept is amusing, but not sure if Kevin James is the best fit for this, though I'm sure he was involved in the deal early on. The full cast features Andy Garcia as "El Toro", Maurice Compte, Kim Coates, Kelen Coleman, Emilie Ullerup and Yul Vazquez. There are a few cringe-worthy moments in this, the rest doesn't look that bad.
Here's the first trailer for Jeff Wadlow's True Memoirs of an International Assassin, from YouTube:
The action comedy stars Kevin James as writer 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. Netflix's True Memoirs of an International Assassin is directed by filmmaker Jeff Wadlow, of the films Cry_Wolf, Never Back Down and Kick-Ass 2 previously. The script is by Jeff Morris. Produced by the guy behind Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse and Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. Netflix will release True Memoirs of an International Assassin in theaters + streaming on November 11th.

Sounds like a brilliant idea, if we compare it to The Ridiculous 6,

Sounds like Three Amigos. Do yourself a favor and watch that comedic gem from the 80's, instead of anything Kevin James is in.

Netflix is doing the every ten steps forward one step back model.

How does Kevin James manage to get jobs??

He probably knows people. This is the only possible explanation.

He uses the same voodoo trick Adam Sandler or Shyamalan are using to stay in the business.
