Lionsgate has announced release dates for three movies, including The Protégé! The action-thriller previously known as The Asset is set to open on August 20th! Here’s the official synopsis they released along with the announcement:
In The PROTÉGÉ, assassin Moody (Samuel L. Jackson) rescues and trains Anna (Maggie Q) in the family business, grooming her to be 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 ever tighter. Martin Campbell directs off Richard Wenks script with producers being Arthur Sarkissian, Moshe Diamant, Rob Van Norden, Yariv Lerner, and Chris Milburn.

DEADLINE – Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, and Maggie Q are set to star in The Asset, an action-thriller from The Foreigner and Casino Royale director Martin Campbell and The Expendables outfit Millennium Media. It’s a package to warm the hearts of AFM action aficionados.
Arthur Sarkissian of the Rush Hour franchise will produce, along with Moshe Diamant (The Hurricane Heist) and Rob Van Norden (Rambo: Last Blood).
Written by Richard Wenk (The Equalizer 2), the story follows Rembrandt (Keaton) and Anna (Maggie Q), two of the world’s premier assassins who share a mysterious past from Vietnam. For years, they traversed the globe competing for high-profile contracts. But when Anna’s mentor Moody (Jackson) is murdered, she and Rembrandt must form an uneasy alliance and return to Vietnam to track down his killer.
Millennium is handling world sales and will launch the fun-sounding project at the AFM this week. Production is due to begin January 8, 2020, and filming will take place in London, Bucharest, and DaNang, Vietnam.
