As per Variety, the film follows an independent assassin, code-named Banshee (King), who is ambushed by Anthony Greene (Flanagan): a powerful mercenary who killed her father, and is now seeking to collect a bounty on Caleb (Banderas), her former black-ops mentor. Caleb went underground five years prior, triggering a race against time as Banshee must find and protect Caleb before Greene and his army of hired killers can find him and take him down.

Responding to the film casting, Keeyes said, “’Banshee’ is a complex story of revenge and family, and having this incredibly talented cast to bring these characters to life is a dream."
