Jim Terrier

Jim Terrier is the main protagonist in 2015's The Gunman and is portrayed by Sean Penn in the film.


Jim Terrier is a former Special Forces operative now working in the private sector. Terrier has a nasty job involving an NGO and helping assassinate politicians as part of a shadowy mining company's interests in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Terrier later goes underground after having a fallout. Several years later, this operation forces him back into action.


Eight years after fleeing the Congo following his assassination of that country's minister of mining, former assassin Jim Terrier is back, suffering from PTSD and digging wells to atone for his violent past. After an attempt is made on his life, Terrier flies to London to find out who wants him dead -- and why. Terrier's search leads him to a reunion with Annie (Jasmine Trinca), a woman he once loved, who is now married to an oil businessman (Javier Bardem) with dealings in Africa.
