Fox is taking another crack at bringing the Hitman video game to the big screen. The first attempt was made in 2007 with Timothy Olyphant as the titular character. This time around the assassin will be Rupert Friend (Homeland) who took over the role after Paul Walker’s untimely death.
HITMAN: AGENT 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.
Hitman: Agent 47 starring Rupert Friend and Zachary Quinto is due in theaters August 28, 2015
