The film is based on the mega best-selling book series by Vince Flynn, who was also a story consultant for the hit TV show '24'

Vince Flynn wrote political thrillers and all 14 of his novels made it to the New York Times best-seller list. 'American Assassin' is the first book of the series featuring one of contemporary fiction’s most popular heroes working in the shadows: CIA super-agent Mitch Rapp. If you enjoyed the Jason Bourne series, this is right up your alley!

Sadly, the author passed away in 2013, but his incredible black ops series featuring Mitch Rapp will continue under a new writer. That means we'll be able to enjoy the addictive series and thrilling action-filled adventures for years to come!
