While the Hitman movie wasn’t really great, we do have a soft spot for Tim Olyphant here at FTN.
With the original movie making just about $100 worldwide, we figured the franchise was dead in the water, but no-one can keep a good franchise down. But now it seems Fox are preparing, six years later, to bring Hitman’s Agent 47 back to the screen in a movie called, em, Agent 47?
We can only assume the lack of Hitman in the title is to distance it from director Xavier Gens’ movie which starred Tim Olyphant (below) as the titular character. However, for the reboot it looks like Fast & Furious actor Paul Walker (above) is set to get the head shaved for the role.
Apparently Walker is almost set to go and the movie will be written by Skip Woods (who wrote the first movie and A Good Day To Die Hard) and directed by TV commercial director Aleksander Bach
The movie goes into production on June 24th and there’s no sign of a release date yet.
