Glen Powell in Hit Man.

Glen Powell Is A Man Of Many Faces In Trailer For Richard Linklater's "Hit Man"

"Who is your hit man?" This is the question the trailer answers for the anticipated new noir & screwball comedy via a rotating arsenal of personas & insane trips in the new movie, Hit Man.

Academy-award winner & seasoned comedic director Richard Linklater, who previously directed School of Rock (2003), Dazed & Confused (1993) & Everybody Wants Some!! (2016), leads this ambitious comedic thriller.

Glen Powell, from Top Gun: Maverick & Anyone But You, stars as strait-laced professor Gary Johnson, who moonlights as a fake hit man for the New Orleans Police Department.

Preternaturally gifted at inhabiting different guises and personalities to catch hapless people hoping to bump off their enemies, Gary descends into morally dubious territory when he finds himself attracted to one of those potential criminals, a beautiful young woman named Madison (Adria Arjona). As Madison falls for one of Gary’s hit man personas — the mysteriously sexy Ron — their steamy affair sets off a chain reaction of play acting, deception, and escalating stakes.

Co-written by Linklater and Powell and inspired by an unbelievable true story, Hit Man is a cleverly existential comedy about identity. This movie marks their latest collaboration since working together on the teen comedy film, Everybody Wants Some!!

Along the ride for this new movie includes its supporting cast Austin Amelio, Retta, Sanjay Rao, Molly Bernard, and Evan Holtzman.

When does "Hit Man" premiere on Netflix?

Hit Man comes to select theaters on May 24th and will later premiere on Netflix June 7th.
