Rivals must become allies and do so in what look to be a funny action thriller from Patrick Hughes.

Ryan Reynolds plays the world’s number one bodyguard whose latest client is a former enemy, a top rated hitman, played by Samuel L. Jackson, who has become a target when he must testify at the International Court of Justice. Reynolds and Jackson together is surely a winning formula for action and comedy as the trailer shows.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard is set for an August 18, 2017 from Lionsgate.
