Seriously, did anyone else know that Hitman: Agent 47 was actually still happening? I know Fox long ago talked about rebooting the Hitman movie franchise, based on the widely popular video game franchise, after star of the original film, Timothy Olyphant, refused to shave his head again and return for a sequel, due to the FX show Justified taking off in a big way.
At one point, the late Paul Walker was attached to lead the film as Agent 47, but then talks were muffled and his unfortunate death sort of squashed those talks.
I honestly thought that the film was sidelined or halted until further notice, but it’s actually still on track for a February 27th release and it stars Zachary Quinto and Rupert Friend.
No idea what it’s about and if it ties together with the first film, but we do have this snazzy new picture to hold us over until release day.
