Nick Stagliano returns with a new action thriller The Virtuoso. A film that breaks from the unconventional hitman films with an outstanding cast.

The Synopsis

Danger, deception, and murder descend upon a sleepy country town when a professional assassin (Anson Mount, “Crossroads”) accepts a new assignment from his enigmatic mentor and boss (two times Oscar® winner Anthony Hopkins). Given only where and when along with a cryptic clue, the methodical hit man must identify his mysterious mark from among several possible targets, including a local sheriff (David Morse,”The Green Mile”). Meanwhile, a chance encounter with an alluring woman (Abbie Cornish, “Bright Star”) at the town’s rustic diner threatens to derail his mission in this noir-style cloak-and-dagger thriller.
