American Assassin 2

Ever since we last saw Mitch Rapp in the 2017 film “American Assassin,” fans of the Vince Flynn-created CIA black ops operative have been clamoring for his return to the big screen. The question everyone asked was when will “American Assassin 2” hit the cinemas, if at all? I’m sad to say, to all the fans of this installment, that the sequel did not, and as far as I know, will not happen.

Recap of the Story From the First Movie

Adapted from Vince Flynn’s best-selling novel, “American Assassin” introduces us to Mitch Rapp, a young man who undergoes a tragic loss, leading him down the path of vengeance against the terrorists responsible.

His unique skills and determination catch the eye of the CIA, who recruits him into a black ops team under the mentorship of Stan Hurley (played by Michael Keaton), a tough-as-nails Cold War veteran. The movie revolves around the duo’s quest to stop a rogue operative from plunging the world into chaos.

The Demand for a Sequel

It’s no secret that fans were looking for more of Rapp’s thrilling adventures. The movie did reasonably well at the box office and, more importantly, gathered a loyal fan base that’s eagerly awaiting the sequel.

There’s no shortage of source material either, with Flynn’s series boasting a total of 19 books at the time of writing. In other words, we have a universe ripe for further exploration.

The Rumors and Speculation

As with any franchise, the rumor mill has been churning ever since the end credits rolled on “American Assassin.” Some rumors suggested a sequel was already in production shortly after the release of the first film. Others hinted at script problems, casting issues, or a complete reboot.

Unfortunately, these rumors, while exciting, are often based on speculation and unverified information. What we needed was an official confirmation or denial.

The Official Word

Due to poor performance at the box office, American Assassin sequel never saw the light of day. The only thing left for hopeful fans is to look forward to a potential reboot, but so far, we didn’t receive any information about it.


Despite a warm reception and a solid fan base eager for more of Rapp’s action-packed exploits, hopes for a sequel to the film have been dashed. While there was speculation and rumor about a follow-up, official sources indicate that due to disappointing box office results, “American Assassin 2” will not be realized.

Fans of Mitch Rapp still have a rich trove of material to explore in Flynn’s novels, but as of now, a return to the big screen for the character remains an unfulfilled wish, with no plans for a reboot or sequel confirmed.
