Lionsgate Home Entertainment has just added American Assassin to its roster, scheduling 4K UHD, Blu-Ray Disc and DVD versions of the thriller for release in early December.

Based on the best-selling book series, American Assassin follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), a CIA black-ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together, the three discover a pattern in the violence, leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on settling a personal and professional vendetta that could have cataclysmic results.

The DVD version will contain only footage from an Alamo Drafthouse Q&A with Dylan O’Brien and Taylor Kitsch as a bonus feature.

The 4K UHD and Blu-Ray version, however, will come packed with the same Alamo Drafthouse Q&A footage, along with five Featurettes named “Target Acquired: Creating an American Assassin,” “Finding Mitch Rapp: Dylan O’Brien,”
“Transfer of Power: Hurley and Ghost,” “Weaponized: Training and Stunts”
and “In the Field: Locations”.

The 4K UHD version will also include Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos presentations.

American Assassin will be in stores on December 5 for $42.99 on 4K UHD, $39.99 on Blu-Ray Disc and $29.99 on DVD.
