According to the synopsis for the film, the story follows an international operative (played by Penn) who is betrayed by the organization he works for, forcing him into a game of cat-and-mouse across Europe.

Javier Bardem, Idris Elba and Mark Rylance are also among the cast, while Pierre Morel is directing.

Peter Travis wrote the screenplay, which is adapted from Jean-Patrick Manchette’s novel.

The film’s producers hope that they could have a potential franchise on their hands.
