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.

"Walker has been tapped shave" I assume you meant "tapped *to* shave."
I know it's news guys but you can't give it *one* quick read-through to catch mistakes like this?
GOD DAMN IT! FAIL!
not him...an assassin?????? no
What did we do to deserve THIS!?!?
OH ***. that is actually a good fit
Just like every other game movie it will suck because they try and mainstream it for all audiences.. Get a gamer to oversee the project for once and you might do a good job and not piss off millions of people on the process
I don't think he fits the part.
NEW Hitman movie? Never even heard of the first one. I'm guessing it was terrible enough for a proper reboot.
no! this is a horrible idea. he can't act well enough to convey that sort of character and he's way to pretty to be 47. Not rough looking enough and yet with a suave sort of aura. and honestly i cant see him having that perfect silhouette with his suit on.
Totally not a fit at all.
I liked the first movie and I like Timothy Olyphant as an actor. Too bad he won't be in this one. I don't have high hopes for it.
It's like someone has the particular job of waking up in the morning and spending their day wondering how to make fans of the franchise really hate it. Absolution was step one, here's step two.
Terrible idea. Timothy Olyphant was a much better choice. What about someone like Michael Fassbender? Why does hollywood always make these bad casting choices?
I'm sure someone else has already said this so I'm just going to agree/suggest Jason Statham lol Bald guy...in a suit...kicking ass...wait- was The Transporter not Hitman?!
No previous directing experience...
