The war on terror needs reliable agents who are willing to take any extreme action deemed necessary to stop a country’s brutal enemies. Steven Seagal is one such dependable operative, as he will repeatedly put himself in harm’s way in order to block an extremist group’s plot to bring harm into America, in his new film, ‘Contract to Kill.’ The movie, which is the action star’s latest entry in the genre that helped make him famous, follows the actor as he plays a CIA operative who is hired to take out an elusive terrorist. In honor of the project’s upcoming release, Shockya is debuting an exclusive photo gallery from the film, which features stills of Seagal and his co-stars.
Lionsgate will release ‘Contract to Kill’ in theaters and VOD next Friday, December 9. The drama was written, directed and produced by Keoni Waxman, who previously worked with Seagal on such action movies as ‘Killing Salazar,’ ‘Force of Execution’ and ‘Maximum Conviction.’ In addition to Seagal, ‘Contract to Kill’ also stars Russell Wong and Jemma Dallender.
In ‘Contract to Kill,’ Seagal plays Harmon, a CIA/DEA enforcer who’s investigating Arab terrorists who were captured in Mexico. With his team, which includes seductive FBI agent Zara (Dallender) and spy-drone pilot Sharp (Wong), he flies to Istanbul. While there, they uncovers a brutal plot: Islamic extremists plan to use Sonora drug-smuggling routes to bring deadly weapons, and leaders, into the U.S. To prevent an attack on America, Harmon must turn these two savage forces against one another before his time-and his luck-run out.
