Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Netflix is giving a glimpse of the new film Hit Man.

The streaming service shared a teaser trailer for the action comedy Monday featuring Glen Powell and Adria Arjona.

Hit Man is co-written by Powell and Richard Linklater and directed by Linklater, a filmmaker known for Dazed and Confused, School of Rock and Boyhood.

The film is "inspired by an unbelievable true story" first featured in the Texas Monthly article of the same name by Skip Hollandsworth.

Hit Man follows a hitman (Powell) who "meets his match in a client (Arjona) who steals his heart and ignites a powder keg of deception, delight, and mixed-up identities."
