Interpol hires the best bodyguard in the business (Ryan Reynolds) to protect the hitman; only trouble is, they hate each other. Salma Hayek and Elodie Yung also star. Hazeldine will play Garrett, the leader of Kincaid’s detail, who has confidence in his team to get the job done at the highest level.
