Paul Walker To Play 'Agent 47' In HITMAN Reboot; Aleksander Bach To Direct

As soon as he finishes promoting Fast And Furious 6, Paul Walker will be shaving his head in order to play 'Agent 47' in a remake of Hitman (a 2007 adaptation of the video game franchise starred Justified's Timothy Olyphant). The movie also has a writer and director. Read on for details!


Deadline has broken the news that Fox International Productions are moving ahead with a reboot of Hitman. The video game franchise has been a hit for developers Square Enix and while the 2007 movie failed to impress critics, it did make over $100 million at the worldwide box office. Paul Walker, star of The Fast And Furious franchise, has signed up to play 'Agent 47' and shooting is expected to take place in Berlin and Singapore this summer. The title of the film will actually be Agent 47 and commercials director Aleksander Bach will make his feature helming debut with the project. The screenplay was written by A Good Day To Die Hard's Skip Woods and Mike Finch.
