Rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody (Samuel L. Jackson) and trained in the family business, Anna (Maggie Q) is the world’s most skilled contract killer. But when Moody – the man who was like a father to her and taught her everything she needs to know about trust and survival – is brutally killed, Anna vows revenge. As she becomes entangled with an enigmatic killer (Michael Keaton) whose attraction to her goes way beyond cat and mouse, their confrontation turns deadly and the loose ends of a life spent killing will weave themselves even tighter.
The film stars Michael Keaton (Batman, The Founder), Maggie Q (Fantasy Island, Death of Me), and Samuel L. Jackson (Captain Marvel, Shaft), with Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Honest Thief).
THE PROTÉGÉ is directed by Martin Campbell (The Foreigner, Edge of Darkness) and written by Richard Wenk (The Mechanic, The Equalizer). The film is produced by Arthur Sarkissian (Rush Hour, Last Man Standing), Moshe Diamant, Rob Van Norden (Olympus Has Fallen, Rambo: Last Blood), Yariv Lerner (Hellboy, Hunter Killer), and Chris Milburn (The Hurricane Heist, The Hunter’s Prayer).
