Hit Man, the noir comedy starring and written by Glen Powell, is now streaming on Netflix.

About The Film:

Inspired by an unbelievable true story, a strait-laced professor discovers his hidden talent as a fake hitman. 

He meets his match in a client who steals his heart and ignites a powder keg of deception, delight, and mixed-up identities.

Oscar-nominated director Richard Linklater’s sunlit neo-noir stars Glen Powell as strait-laced professor Gary Johnson, who moonlights as a fake hitman 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.

Release Date:

Hit Man arrives on Netflix on June 7, 2024.
