Agent 47 Is Returning to the Big Screen

Fox International Productions have given the green light for a big screen reboot of IO Interactive’s, classic video game Hitman, titled ‘Agent 47’, which will see Fast and Furious star Paul Walker, stepping into the shoes of the iconic dome headed assassin.

‘Agent 47’ which is to be set in Berlin and Singapore, follows on from the 2007 adaptation of Hitman which starred Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood, Justified) as Agent 47. That film may have netted almost $100 million worldwide, but was not loved by all.

On board to direct and making his big screen directorial debut is Aleksander Bach, while Skip Woods, who wrote the 2007 script, returns to pen this latest adaptation.

Agent 47 is expected to start filming later this summer.
