The lights are on
Fox is looking to reboot the Hitman movie franchise, this time with Paul Walker, best known for his work in the The Fast and the Furious films. The film will be titled Agent 47.
With Timothy Olyphant, who played Agent 47, busy starring in one of the best television shows currently on the air, Justified, Walker has been tapped shave his dome and put on a black suit. According to Deadline.com, the film's script was written by Skip Woods and Michael Finch, who worked together on A Good Day to Die Hard.
It will be directed by Aleksander Bach, who has no previous film experience, but has won advertising industry awards for directing television spots for Mercedes Benz and the International Red Cross. The film will be distributed by 20th Century Fox. The executive producer on the project is Daniel Alter who produced the original Hitman film and is also reportedly involved in the film adaptation of Kane & Lynch.

It doesn't seem like a Hitman movie would be hard to make. The plot is kind of thin.
it's refreshing to see this dude not play a cop...
Mind = blown.
my god, what do we do...
I guess it would be more likely to fit into the action mold Hollywood loves.
I don't know about this one....
No... no... please God no... please don't let this happen!
When will this be out?
If he really does play as Agent 47 in the next Hitman movie and pulls it off, it'll boost his career, but movie adaptations of video games always get a bad rep, so even if he is great in the movie, the actual movie may suck. At the moment, I personally don't believe that Paul Walker is suited for this kind of role, I do enjoy him in the Fast and Furious movies and movies like Takers, but he's a pretty boy, where as 47 is like this stern, solemn guy
Ah desperation.....what a miserable b**** you are
