Bruce Willis Battles A Body Hopping “Assassin”
It looks like Bruce Willis’ career is about to finally come to an end. The poster and trailer for his final announced film, Assassin, have arrived. It’s certainly not the most original of plots, think Possessor, but this story of trained killers possessing other people’s bodies to act as human drones certainly has potential. And I’m sure we’d all like to see him go out on a higher note than his last few releases.
Assassin is the feature film debut of director Jesse Atlas who co-wrote it with Aaron Wolfe based on their short Let Them Die Like Lovers. Willis plays the head of the private security company that develops the technology behind the program. Technology that falls into the wrong hands when an agent is killed on assignment. Saban Films will release Assassin in theatres as well as on VOD and Digital on March 31st.

Bruce Willis (Glass) and Nomzamo Mbatha (Coming 2 America) star in this action-packed sci-fi thrill ride. A private military operation led by (Willis) invents futuristic microchip tech that enables the mind of an agent to inhabit the body of another person to carry out covert, deadly missions. But when an agent (Mustafa Shakir) is killed during a secret mission, his wife (Mbatha) takes his place in an attempt to bring the man responsible to Justice.

You’d think that a half decent movie (like any of the Detective Knight films) would be the last to release to honor his work, but no, it’s this one.
This doesn’t look to be any worse than those films, and it has to be better than the second one.
That said he probably lost his chance to go out with a strong film when White Elephant was released.
This just looks like one of those movies whose premise could easily make it into a complete mess moreso than the construction of it. A bigger risk with a better potential payoff.
