The Gunman centers on international spy Martin Terrier (Sean Penn), who is attempting to clear his name in order to save himself from the organization he once worked for. The film is based on novel written by Jean-Patrick Manchette titled The Prone Gunman. Javier Bardem will likely play one of the henchman sent to kill the former spy.
Plot details are few on A Most Violent Year, but we do know that the actor will be portraying a good guy. Production scheduled to begin this fall in Manhattan.
