Mel Gibson is the most known name of Agent Game, the upcoming spy thriller which is also starring Dermot Mulroney, Jason Isaacs, Adan Canto, Annie Ilonzeh, Rhys Coiro, Barkhad Abdi, and Katie Cassidy.
The independent film Agent Game was announced in March last year, with Grant S. Johnson set to direct the movie from the screenplay written by Mike Langer and Tyler W. Konney. Konney also serves as the producer.
Agent Game follows Harris (Dermot Mulroney), a CIA officer who’s involved in multiple missions of detaining and relocating foreign nationals for interrogation. When his superior (Isaacs) is murdered, Harris will become a scapegoat for the killing of an interrogation subject (Abdi) and be forced to go on the run from a team of operatives (Canto, Cassidy, Coiro) that was sent to bring him in. To make things worse, the team is led by a ruthless double agent (Ilonzeh).
