So far, the new film Hit Man has earned excellent reviews — its Rotten Tomatoes score is 97% — while walking a fine line between comedy, action, crime drama, and romance. The movie stars Glen Powell, who co-wrote the screenplay with director Richard Linklater, The script is based on a magazine article about a real person who did part time undercover police work, posing as a master hit man. While Powell plays the role on the screen, he said he intentionally kept his distance from his real-life counterpart, instead letting Linklater get to know him as they put the screenplay together.(Click on the media bar below to hear Glen Powell)
