SNIPER franchise star Chad Michael Collins returns to the eighth installment of Sony’s ongoing military action films with SNIPER: ASSASSIN’S END. Collins reprises the role of ‘Brandon Beckett’, son of legendary Marine sniper ‘Thomas Beckett’ (Tom Berenger), for the fifth time and is joined by Berenger and Japanese pop star/actress Sayaka Akimoto as ‘Lady Death’, from lauded comic book artist/writer and director Kaare Andrews.
“ASSASSIN’S END feels like fresh blood in our ongoing SNIPER franchise, a non-stop action-fest that reinvigorates the series,” Collins says. “There are not only the pre-requisite gun fights and shootouts, but a ton of amazing hand-to-hand combat and exciting fight choreography courtesy of renowned Fight/Stunt Coordinator Brett Chan!” “Kaare Andrews put such a unique stamp on the film, with many stylized shots and flourishes that feel fresh and new for our series,” adds Collins. “He’s a talented director and an accomplished artist, so you feel that right away.” Shot in and around Vancouver, BC, ASSASSIN’S END takes audiences from city high-rises to lush green forests and even a sleek, modern oceanfront mansion.
SYNOPSIS: Special Ops sniper Brandon Beckett (Chad Michael Collins, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare) is set up as the primary suspect for the murder of a foreign dignitary on the eve of signing a high-profile trade agreement with the United States. Narrowly escaping death, Beckett realizes that there may be a dark operative working within the government, and partners with the only person whom he can trust: his father, legendary sniper Sgt. Thomas Beckett (Golden Globe®-winner Tom Berenger). Both Becketts are on the run from the CIA, Russian mercenaries and Lady Death, a Yakuza-trained assassin (Japanese actress and singer Sayaka Akimoto in her Hollywood film debut) with sniper skills that rival both legendary sharpshooters.
