When he’s not running in mazes or being welcomed to the Scorch, Dylan O’Brien is a black ops assassin ready to handle the CIA’s most sensitive crimes. O’Brien stars as Mitch Rapp, a counterterrorism operative who has to stop a maniac from starting a third world war in American Assassin. The film is based on the first of a 15-book-long series by Vince Flynn, and if this one does well in theaters, we can expect a whole lot more, as this is the first in a planned franchise.
Dylan O’Brien has caught franchise fever. With his work on the last installment of The Maze Runner series wrapping up, he’s just started production on American Assassin, based on Vince Flynn’s bestselling 15-book series. O’Brien will play Mitch Rapp, a counterterrorism operative who has to stop a maniac from starting another world war.
