Anthony Hopkins, Anson Mount and Abbie Cornish star in upcoming crime thriller movie The Virtuoso.
We’ll let the official blurb handle this one for us: “Danger, deception, and murder descend upon a sleepy country town when a professional assassin (Anson Mount) accepts a new assignment from his enigmatic mentor and boss (Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins). Given only where and when along with a cryptic clue, the methodical hit man must identify his mysterious mark from among several possible targets, including a local sheriff (David Morse). Meanwhile, a chance encounter with an alluring woman (Abbie Cornish) at the town’s rustic diner threatens to derail his mission in this noir-style cloak-and-dagger thriller.”
We’re not entirely convinced by the trailer, although Anthony Hopkins looks to be having a ball, and we’d pretty much watch him bouncing a ball for 90 minutes, so…
The Virtuoso is set for release in April. Here’s the trailer:
