Okay, so not really a bar…more like a movie trailer — but still! That’s some inspired casting. Is it time for a Sean Penn comeback? Looks like with The Gunman, he’s trying for an action hero reinvention a la Tom Cruise or Liam Neeson.

Pierre Morel (Taken) directs the Penn/Bardem/Elba trio in an adaptation of Jean-Patrick Manchette’s The Prone Gunman, producing what looks like an action-packed mashup of the Bourne and Taken series. Penn stars as Jim Terrier, the assassin who wants to retire; Bardem and Elba stand in his way. Guns, shit blowing up, and scary-crazy Bardem…what more could you want from an action thriller? Check it:

Are you buying what Penn’s selling (Charlize is) — ja oder nein?

The Gunman also stars Ray Winstone, Peter FranzĂ©n, Jasmine Trinca and Mark Rylance; it’s in theaters March 20th.
