'THE VIRTUOSO' CASTS
ANTHONY HOPKINS, ANSON MOUNT AND ABBIE CORNISH
|Anson Mount will lead the noir thriller|
The story of the movie revolves around a professional assassin (Anson Mount) who must track down and kill his latest target to satisfy an outstanding debt to his mentor (Anthony Hopkins). Unlike his other “jobs,” this assignment offers precious little information. He’s given no name or photo, only that his target will be in a rustic diner in a dying town at 5:00 PM. Bound by obligation, THE VIRTUOSO embarks on a manhunt to find his
prey and accomplish the mission. Any one of the
patrons in the diner could be the mark, even the enigmatic waitress
(Abbie Cornish) who, even if she’s not the prey, could prove to be a
distraction that threatens to derail his task, and endanger his life.
|Anthony Hopkins and Abbie Cornish will also star in the movie|
