As Scotty in the rebooted Star Trek series and his various Everymen in the Cornetto trilogy, Simon Pegg’s screen persona is benign, often self-deprecating — the kind of guy you’d have a pint with. But, in the upcoming thriller Kill Me Three Times, Pegg is far from harmless, playing an assassin for hire.
Based on this exclusive red-band trailer, Pegg’s trademark humor remains intact, as his character Charlie Wolfe pauses to take a call while in the middle of a job. After a bungled hit, however, Charlie finds himself in a web of blackmail, murder, and revenge.
Also starring Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Sullivan Stapleton (300: Rise of an Empire), and Luke Hemsworth (brother of Chris and Liam), Kill Me Three Times comes out on VOD March 26 and in theaters April 10.
