Taran Killam was easily one of the breakout faces from the recent years of Saturday Night Live, but left the show to pursue other interests, and now we’re seeing what those other interests are. KILLING GUNTHER isn’t just a starring vehicle for the comedic actor, it’s also his directorial debut. In the movie, Killam plays an assassin who wants to kill the world’s greatest hit-man named Gunther (played by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger). The film looks to be shot in mockumentary style, and I got a few chuckles from the trailer. The supporting cast features Cobie Smulders, Hannah Simone, Allison Tolman, Steve Bacic, Aaron Yoo, and another SNL alum in the form of Bobby Moynihan, who just left the show. See what you think and tell us your thoughts in the comments. And by the way, the post above features art by Paul Shipper… and looks pretty snazzy, wouldn’t you agree?

A group of eccentric assassins are fed up with Gunther, the world’s greatest hit-man and decide to kill him but their plan turns into a series of bungled encounters as Gunther seems to always be one step ahead.

KILLING GUNTHER opens October 20, 2017
