Hitman movie reboot gets leading man

Paul Walker

The Fox International Productions reboot of the big-screen adaptation of the Hitman series has got its leading man – Paul Walker.

The Fast and the Furious and Into the Blue star will take over the role of Agent 47, which was previously portrayed by Timothy Oliphant.

Skip Woods and Michael Finch (A Good Day To Die Hard) is writing the script, while Aleksander Bach, who’s well-known for his work on commercials, will direct.

The first Hitman film, despite receiving mixed reviews, racked up just under $100,000,000 at the box office.

Shooting for the new Hitman film is expected to take place in Berlin and Singapore later this year.

  • Uberutang

    That is an photo from another movie mr Guest. 😛

  • Saint_Dee

    I think the more appropriate question is; can you imagine him without hair 😕

  • Uberutang

    He kinda does look like Agent 47 if I edit the hair out…

  • codeleather

    He looks to friendly 😛

  • The Rich

    That’s EXACTLY what I was thinking!

  • Saint_Dee

    TBH, I just don’t see him doing the role justice… Might surprise me when all is said and done, but for now? I just don’t see it.

  • The Rich

    I agree, in fact I don’t think Paul Walker has ever done any role justice, and that’s a big admission coming from a massive F&F Fanboy. The only thing he’s really good at is doing the thousand mile stare and saying BRO repeatedly.

  • Saint_Dee

    As another F&F fanboy, those are my exact sentiments.

  • The Rich

    Ha. Wait a second, (and please don’t take this the wrong way) but I thought you were a woman? Which would make you a fangirl, right? You know, the ‘Dee’ and all is what led me up that path. Please do forgive this fat bastard if I’m wrong.

  • Saint_Dee

    I just lost my sh*t xD! For the rather outrageous laugh I’m having, your mistake is forgiven… Isn’t there some internet rule about everyone on the internet being guys :P?

    while Aleksander Bach, who’s well-known for his work on commercials, will direct.

    This is a little worrying …..
