George and Harry Kirby started their careers making short films for the YouTube crowd. George, a stuntman, is known for doubling Benedict Cumberbatch as Marvel’s Doctor Strange. It was during the making of the film that he met Scott Adkins, who played the zealot Lucius. Flash forward six years later and the brothers were recommended by Scott himself to take over directorial duties on the long awaited sequel to the 2018 film Accident Man. The sequel, Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday, will be out on October 14 in theaters, VOD, and Digital from Samuel Goldwyn Films.
