What do you get when the world’s greatest hit-man has been targeted by a team of assassins and everyone is being followed around by a documentary crew?
You get Killing Gunther that stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and former Saturday Night alum Taran Killam making his directorial debut.
Make no mistake “Killing Gunther” is a straight up comedy; something Schwarzenegger has had success with in his career in the past. When you watch the trailer its obvious that Schwarzenegger is letting loose and having a fun time as “Gunther”, but ever since he returned to Hollywood after his time as Governor of California, has never really had huge success at the box office.
It’s fun to see Schwarzenegger take on a role that not only allows him to do what he does best on screen, kick ass, but also have fun with the audience with the winks to the camera and making jokes about roles that made him famous.
Killing Gunther will be available on VOD beginning September 22nd and released in select theaters on October 20th.
Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Taran Killam, Bobby Moynihan, Cobie Smulders, Hannah Simone, and Allison Tolman.
Killing Gunther tells the story of Gunther (Schwarzenegger), the world’s greatest hit-man. There are plenty of reasons to want to kill him: he’s arrogant, he’s a show-off, and he steals jobs. The assassin community is tired of it. Determined to retire Gunther for good, a group of eccentric killers from across the globe come together to set the perfect trap. But their master plan quickly turns into a series of embarrassing fails as Gunther always appears one step ahead.
