Golding plays hitman Morgan Gaines, recruited to take out six individuals at various global locations.
Yet the assassin soon learns things aren’t what they seem – and that those he has been hired to kill are also hitmen and hitwomen.
What’s more – they’ve all been hired to assassinate each other.
Rapace will portray Falk, another elite assassin, while Neill plays Morgan’s mentor. Melchoir – who played Cleo Cazo in Suicide Squad – plays Morgan’s girlfriend Sophie, who is put at risk by the deadly mission.
