Movies about brooding assassins have a surprisingly good track record (for a quick refresher, we suggest this, this, and even this), and Clooney’s not doing so bad these days either, so we’re tentatively excited for The American. So far, the plot seems to involve George jetting around Europe and encountering a wide variety of beautiful Italian women with ulterior motives—which seems a lot closer to the man’s actual life than Up in the Air. We’re hoping he gets to drive a rocket car at some point, but it’s noticeably absent from the trailer.
