Now in production in Europe, director Pierre Morel’s The Gunman has revealed a first still of Sean Penn’s Martin Terrier. Check it out below!

An adaptation of Jean-Patrick Manchette’s novel “The Prone Gunman,” the film version is also set to star Javier Bardem, Idris Elba and Ray Winstone. Although Manchette passed away in 1995, the book was translated by James Brooks and published through Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s City Light Books in 2002.

Sean Penn stars as Jim Terrier, an international operative who is betrayed by the organization he worked for, and must go on the run in a relentless game of cat and mouse across Europe.

Joel Silver and Andrew Rona are producing The Gunman with Peter Travis providing the screenplay.
