First Look At Rupert Friend In Hitman: Agent 47 Film

Homeland star Rupert Friend is playing Agent 47 in 20th Century Fox upcoming Hitman movie. He’s got a bald head and a slick suit, so he’s already doing as good of a job as Timothy Olyphant from the 2007 adaptation.

Hitman: Agent 47 has had a troubled development history. Late star Paul Walker was originally cast for the role when the film was announced last year, but after his tragic death, Friend was recast for the part.

20th Century Fox debuted a few clips from the film during a panel at Comic-Con. The rest of us will have to wait for that footage, but in the meantime take a gander at these photos of Friend in action. In the above image you can see Friend's stern look. It kind of looks like he's going to shoot someone, maybe we'll get to see him do that in the actual film. Savvy viewers might notice a girl behind him; apparently there will also be women in the film. Check out the image below to see how Friend will hold to guns in the film.
