Released in 1996, 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' tells the story of Samantha, a mother and schoolteacher with amnesia, who recovers her memories and discovers she was once an assassin for the CIA. Directed by Renny Harlin, the film was written by Shane Black, who was at the time becoming one of the highest-paid screenwriters in Hollywood, thanks to his work on 'Lethal Weapon.' Black more recently wrote the screenplay for and directed 'Iron Man 3,' but 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' remains a cult classic. Eighteen years later, we revisit Geena Davis, Samuel L. Jackson and the rest of the cast, and see what they're up to now.
