Don't miss your last chance to watch Bruce Willis in action! The Hollywood icon's final production, Assassin, is bound to be a thrilling ride - from synopsis information to release date, here's everything you need to know.

Willis's final film, Assassin, is sure to be an unforgettable viewing experience for fans of the actor. The movie was initially slated for a 2022 release date but unfortunately got pushed back due to the pandemic. Directed by David Ayer and written by Chris Morgan and Cory Goodman, this action-packed thriller stars Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Jessica Biel, Richard Dreyfuss, Nomzamo Mbatha, Dominic Purcell, Mustafa Shakir, Hannah Quinlivan, and Fernanda Andrade. As for what to expect?

The movie follows an assassin hired to kill a powerful businessman who discovers his target is involved in something much bigger than he ever expected. It's set to premiere in select theaters and VOD on March 31 , 2023. Those interested in watching it when it comes out next month, there are several ways you can do so; you can purchase tickets for the theatrical release or wait until it hits VOD platforms such as iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play Movies & TV, and more. Those looking for more information on the film's plotline can read the logline released earlier this year; "A private military operation led by [Willis] invents futuristic microchip tech that enables the mind of an agent to inhabit the body of another person to carry out covert deadly missions. But when an agent (Mustafa Shakir) is killed during a secret mission, his wife (Mbatha) takes his place in an attempt to bring the man responsible to justice."

Bruce Willis's retirement from acting came as a shock for many of us as he had been working steadily prior to his family's announcement. Sadly since his diagnosis with frontotemporal dementia (FTD), most of those films were often released directly to VOD, making Assassin seemingly Willis's last one. FTD is a cruel disease that affects many people under 60 years old so, hopefully, media attention on Assassin can help shed light on what needs far more awareness and research around FTD today, as there currently are no treatments available yet. So make sure you don't miss out on Bruce Willis's final performance!
