Looks like Kevin James is going to be leading a Netflix original film, and despite the above featured image, it is a not a Paul Blart: Mall Cop movie. The streaming service has announced today that the actor/comedian will be heading the film entitled True Memoirs Of An International Assassin.
The film's synopsis is as follows:
"A mild-mannered would-be author gets mistaken for a killer-for-hire when his fictional novel about an international assassin is published as a true story. The book is a huge success and he is suddenly kidnapped and taken to Venezuela and forced into an assassination plot."
While I feel no particular way or another about this film, I'm very interested to see the online interest. Given James' »

A young man trying to do the right thing keeps getting pulled in all the wrong directions in “The Land,” a dispatch from Cleveland youth culture that marks a promising if uneven debut for writer-director Steven Caple Jr. Falling into the common first-feature trap of trying to do too much at once, Caple’s film follows a group of friends, select members of their families and a drug queenpin, but only newcomer Jorge Lendeborg Jr. truly captivates as the de facto lead. The involvement of hip-hop stars Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly) in a small role and Nas as exec producer of the film and soundtrack will be the main selling points for an otherwise modest picture.

"Look at you, all done up in that white dress and those white shoes. This is a proper get-up, my dear. You look hot!"
