Wild Target

Bill Nighy, Emily Blunt, Rupert Grint and Rupert Everett star in WILD TARGET, Jonathan's most recent film. The starry British cast also includes Eileen Atkins, Martin Freeman and Gregor Fisher.

Bill Nighy is Victor Maynard, a middle-aged, solitary assassin, who lives to please his formidable mother, Louisa (Eileen Atkins), despite his own peerless reputation for lethal efficiency. His professional routine is interrupted when he finds himself drawn to one of his intended victims, Rose (Emily Blunt). He spares her life, unexpectedly acquiring a young apprentice in the process, Tony (Rupert Grint). Believing Victor to be a private detective, his two new companions tag along, while he attempts to thwart the murderous attentions of his unhappy client (Rupert Everett).

Directed by Jonathan Lynn from a screenplay by Lucinda Coxon based on Pierre Salvadori’s French hit “Cible Émouvante”, WILD TARGET was produced by Martin Pope and Michael Rose of Magic Light Pictures.

WILD TARGET was a CinemaNX and Isle of Man Film Presentation, in association with Entertainment Film Distributors, of a Magic Light Pictures production with Matador Pictures and Cinema Four in association with Regent Capital. The US distributor was Freestyle releasing.
