Wild Target will get a limited release in NYC and LA on October 29th.
I’ve added new official trailer of Emily Blunt in ‘Wild Target’ movie. Video has been uploaded & screen captures have been added to the gallery.
Wild Target is what you get when you combine British deadpan, a hitman with a conscience, Ron Weasley, a con artist on the run, mobsters, a lot of shooting, and the world of artistic forgery. In other words, something real funny. Bill Nighy (Valkyrie) plays hitman Victor Maynard who’s sent to kill a con-lady played by Emily Blunt (The Wolfman) after she ripped off a mobster. Instead of making the kill though, he finds himself drawn to his mark and wants to protect her rather than putting two in the back of her head. Before you know it they’ve hit Rupert Grint (Harry Potter) with a car, and the three are on the run from the mob.It looks like director Jonathan Lynn (The Fighting Temptations) has taken an unlikely trio and put them together to form a fairly adept comedy team. Nighy looks the part of a slightly over the hill hitman looking for a little redemption (or even a dose of playing the father figure) and Grint brings just a hint of Ronald Weasley’s nervous doofus side to the role of a wannabe killer. Blunt appears more than capable of playing the girl who just doesn’t quite get the trouble she’s made. Oh and in case you didn’t know already, from the trailer you’ll learn that Rembrandt is, in fact, dead.
