“A case of mistaken identity arises after a screw-up sales consultant and the world’s deadliest assassin—known only as The Man from Toronto— run into each other at a holiday rental.”
Jason Statham was initially cast as the famous assassin, the Man from Toronto. He backed out of working on the film due to creative differences with Sony Pictures.
At an Airbnb rental, an unsuspecting sales consultant is misidentified as ‘the Man from Toronto’, a chilling killer, known for torturing his targets. To save his own life, he pretends to be the tormentor until he is captured by the FBI who order him to continue playing the part of the Man from Toronto in order to lure the real butcher into their trap.
However, the killer has his own plans since his clients have confused him and his pretender. He threatens to murder the sales consultant if he doesn’t complete the missions.
When the clients turn on them, the pair flee together while working through their differences.
