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.

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.

Good choice of pic. Movie is gonna blow. But we can all hope for something more.
I won't judge it until I see it.
A. Tim has no interest because the first was strictly a money project.
B. This one starts shooting after the press tour for Fast Six is over.
Jesus is it really that hard to cast Jason Statham for the role? The dude is perfect as 47, just look at Transporter 1.
The suit, the gloves, the baldness, the elongated shaped head, the rules etc...
Lynch played by Jaime Foxx
Are you kidding me!? Why not cast Paul Rudd as CJ or cast Salma Hayek as Faith from Mirror's Edge. Jesus Christ hollywood, just make your own damn film and don't attach a game name to it if you're not going to stick to the original work.
That's the whole point of making a game movie.
I'm not holding my breath for this. While the first Hitman movie was ok I don't think it captured the feel of the games.
And yet again they get someone that doesn't look anything like Agent 47 -_-
well, I dunno.
For once his lack of emotion will play the part.
I'm kind of okay with Paul Walker playing the lead role. The unknown director is what scares me a bit.
I'm always up for a good video game movie. Bring it on.
If you think Frederick`s story is something,, won weak-ago my girlfriend basically also earned $8025 grafting an eleven hour week at home and they're co-worker's mother`s neighbour did this for six months and got a cheque for over $8025 parttime on their computer. follow the advice from this web-site, http://www.bit90.com
Anyone with a brain and experience in the Hitman series should know that 'Jason Statham' is and has always been the right choice.
Haha, now Paul Walker has to shave.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NO GOD NOOOOO!
Paul *** Walker? If this happens... then the sun may as well "rise" in the "West"
Well now. Um, shoot a few dudes maybe?
