Fast Charlie trailer: Pierce Brosnan and Morena Baccarin tie up loose ends in a brutal hitman thriller

Pierce Brosnan and Morena Baccarin lead an intense and bloody Phillip Noyce-directed thriller in the Fast Charlie trailer.

Pierce Brosnan has a very particular set of skills in Vertical’s Fast Charlie trailer, and he’s not afraid to show you how he keeps them sharp. The upcoming thriller from director Phillip Noyce (SaltGone Baby GoneThe Giver) features Brosnan as Charlie Swift, a fixer whose latest victim is missing his head, and it’s up to Charlie to prove the rest of his body belongs to his intended target.

Based on the novel “Gun Monkeys” by Victor Gischler, Fast Charlie  has the following synopsis:

Charlie Swift (Pierce Brosnan), aka “Fast Charlie,” is a fixer with a problem: the target he’s whacked is missing his head. And he must prove it’s the intended target to the man who paid for the hit – New Orleans’ most prominent and most ruthless mobster, Beggar Mercado (Gbenga Akinnagbe). Charlie enlists Marcie Kramer (Morena Baccarin), the victim’s ex-wife and a woman with the backbone and skillset Charlie needs. Dragging Marcie back into a past she was determined to escape sends the two of them on a wild and unpredictable odyssey that’s unexpectedly amusing, action-propelled, and ultimately heartfelt. Along the way, Charlie and Marcie fight to protect the legacy of Charlie’s best friend and mentor, Stan Mullen (James Caan in his final performance), while bringing down Beggar and his entire operation.

Pierce Brosnan, Morena Baccarin, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Toby Huss, Sharon Gless, and James Caan lead the 90-minute action thriller.

In the Fast Charlie trailer, we find Brosnan’s Charlie running short on patience and willing to use every bullet in his stash to get what he wants. Along the way, Charlie recruits Marcie, a woman determined not to let the past determine her future, even in the face of death, destruction, and deception. As Charlie and Marcie follow a trail of bloody breadcrumbs toward resolving their problems, body counts rise, best-laid plans fall to pieces, and new paths open.
