‘Hitman’ is Rebooted: ‘Fast and the Furious’ Actor to Star

After 2007’s Hitman film (based on the video game series) received a lukewarm reception at the box office, nothing was stated concerning the fate of the game as a possible film series. Now hope has come along.

Paul Walker

Paul Walker, who has had massive success as one of the leads in the Fast and the Furious films, will now take over as the Hitman in Agent 47. In 2007’s Hitman, Timothy Olyphant was the titular assassin. Olyphant didn’t seem to be a proper fit for the character, but maybe Paul Walker (and newbie director Aleksander Bach) can take the franchise further. Agent 47 will come to theaters in 2014.
