The Assassin's Apprentice is an award-winning futuristic action-thriller franchise, created by some of the most adept minds in independent film, and starring true legends in science fiction film and action genre stunts.  

The Assassins franchise continues in this second film called The Assassin's Apprentice Goes to the Canary Islands, with the addition of Armin Shimerman (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Batman: The Brave and the Bold),  Gary Graham (Enterprise, Alien Nation, Renegades, Unbelievable!!!!!) and Ryan T. Husk (Renegades, 5th Passenger, Blade of Honor, Star Trek: Into Darkness).

In this sequel, Kaylee (Paige), an apprentice assassin for TAA Corp., is thrust into a secret mission to the Canary Islands to find an ancient clan of Silbadores who train the TAA Corp.'s eccentric, and somewhat talkative, tactical drones.  Once again, things do not go as planned, with the arrival of a counter-assassin intent on also intent on finding the Silbadores, and making sure that they never again aid TAA Corp.

The first film, "The Assassin's Apprentice," is a story about a young apprentice assassin (Tarah Paige - True Blood, CSI: NY, Transformers, Star Trek: Renegades) whose first solo mission is to neutralize a notorious, and previously untouchable, drug kingpin (Rico E. Anderson - The Orville, 5th Passenger, Star Trek: Renegades, Star Trek - Horizon). Because of her unparalleled athletic skills and insatiable thirst for adventure and excitement, she attempts to execute her hit in a different manner than her trainer (Robert Picardo - Star Trek: Voyager, Total Recall, Stargate: Atlantis, Supernatural) and handler (Marina Sirtis - Star Trek: Next Generation, Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Generations) would like.

The Assassin's Apprentice: The Silbadores of La Gomera is a sequel to the first Assassin's Apprentice film and will serve as the second step in a bigger plan to establish the Assassins franchise, which will include a trilogy of feature films, an Assassins mobile game, and exclusive membership into the world of secret assassins.
