American Assassin, O'Brien's first major film role since his serious accident on the set of Maze Runner: The Death Cure in March, pairs him with Hollywood heavyweights, Michael Keaton and Sanaa Lathan.

Keaton portrays Stan Hurley, a Cold War veteran responsible for training Rapp, while Lathan plays Irene Kennedy, whose character recruited Rapp to the CIA.
