Kevin James’ newest feature-length vehicle “True Memoirs of an International Assassin” will stream through Netflix. Directed by Jeff Wadlow (“Kick Ass 2”), the latest plot of an emasculated man not living life fully until he’s forced from his comfort zone follows James’ character Sam Larson, an author hiding behind his globetrotting alter-ego “The Ghost”.
Larson’s Bond-like tales of The Ghost are published and become an immediate success, except his publisher markets the fictitious story as a memoir. Enough readers buy-in that the kill-for-hire community also choose to believe what they’ve read and kidnap the greatest assassin there never was for help in a murderous plot. While Sam Larson lives up to the character he crafted in ways never expected, many of his hopes crash and burn spectacularly.
The film includes a diverse cast of comedy and action veterans alike, including Andy Garcia (Kill the Messenger), Zulay Henao (Meet the Blacks), Maurice Compte (“Narcos”), Andrew Howard (Taken 3), Rob Riggle (22 Jump Street), Kelen Coleman (“The McCarthy’s”), Leonard Earl Howze (Memphis Beat), Yul Vasquez (The Lottery) and Kim Coates (“Sons of Anarchy”). “True Memoirs of an International Assassin” streams November 11th to all Netflix subscribers worldwide.
