The show stars Michael Keaton, Maggie Q, Samuel L. Jackson, and Robert Patrick.
Saved growing up through the legendary assassin Moody (Samuel L. Jackson) and trained in the household business, Anna (Maggie Q) may be the world’s most skilled contract killer. However when Moody – the person who had been just like a father to her and trained her everything she needs to understand about trust and survival – is brutally wiped out, Anna vows revenge. As she becomes entangled by having an enigmatic killer (Michael Keaton) whose attraction to her goes way beyond cat and mouse, their confrontation turns deadly and also the loose ends of the existence spent killing will weave themselves even tighter.
The Protégé, directed by Martin Campbell and compiled by Richard Wenk, comes to theaters on August 20, 2021.
