Netflix has released an enjoyable making of featurette for director Richard Linklater’s (Boyhood, Dazed and Confused, School of Rock) upcoming action comedy film Hit Man.

The behind-the-scenes video features interviews with the cast of the film and the director as they talk about the story and offer details on the characters they play. There’s also some new footage included to enjoy.

Glen Powell (Top Gun: Maverick, Twisters) stars in the true-crime assassin comedy as Gary Johnson, who is a fake hitman.

Johnson is “a part-time teacher who moonlights as a mysterious gun man for hire. But there’s a catch in hiring him to off your cheating spouse or abusive boss — he’s working for the cops.

“When he breaks protocol to help a desperate woman (Adria Arjona ) trying to flee an abusive husband, he finds himself becoming one of his false personas, falling for the woman and flirting with turning into a criminal himself.”

Linklater adapted the screenplay with Powell from a Texas Monthly article by Skip Hollandsworth. Linklater and Powell previously worked together on the 2016 movie Everybody Wants Some and Netflix’s animated sci-fi drama Apollo 10 1/2.

The film has been described as “a true-life screwball underworld romantic philosophical thriller comedy noir about the world’s unlikeliest undercover agent.”

Hit Man looks like it’ll be a really fun movie! It will be released on Netflix on June 7th.
