Hitman Movie Reboot Plans

Deadline.com has news that Fox is planning a Hitman movie reboot following the commercially successful (but critically, not so much) movie starring Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood, Justified). Word is the new movie, called Agent 47, will star Paul Walker (The Fast and the Furious, Another Fast and the Furious , Yet Another Fast and the Furious) and will mark the feature film debut of director Aleksander Bach, previously known for directing commercials. Thanks IGN.

They should do a Max Payne movie reboot instead. That one was far worse, and deserves better. I actually didn't mind the Hitman movie as much.

Agent 47, a Hitman story. In theaters everywhere, August 27th!

Sounds like a winning movie poster to me.

If he can find a better compliment anywhere he can take it.

I really like the Hitman movie. Thought Timothy Olyphant acted it pretty good; all straight faced when checking out hot chicks or killing evil henchmen. Only problem I had with the movie was when they were in the Russian train station. The conversation would have gone something like this"
"So the guy has a tattoo on his neck, right?"
"Da"
"Ok, so stop everyone with a tattoo on their neck."

I actually thought Paul Walker was fine in Five Fast Five Furious.

Actually, I think I thought everyone was fine in that. Was Michelle Rodriguez in it? If so, she wasn't fine, but everyone else was.

Movie was a huge surprise. Saw it in Thailand of all places, killing time as it monsooned out. Having only seen the original, which kind of sucked, and knowing all the sequels almost definitely sucked, and all the actors almost definitely sucked (Vin Diesel has his moments and whatever The Rock calls himself is a ball of charisma and terrible career choices), but it was a decent movie.

And Paul Walker wasn't horrific in it! He can put that compliment on his resume!

Holy shit, I know this is a gaming site, but NEVER BADMOUTH the Hitman movie.

Olga Kurylenko. End of story.

As far as the reboot, scoff at your leisure, if Paul Walker is involved.

Paul Walker is literally the worst fucking actor currently being asked to play in movies. He makes Hayden Christensen look like the second coming of Tom Hanks in comparison.

So yeah, a movie reboot starring the most incapable actor in Hollywood... I think it'll do fucking GREAT! All they need now is C-TATES playing the bad guy, and it'll soar!

Sigh

I actually didn't think the Olyphant version was all that bad.

Jesus that was bad movie. Timothy Olyphant should never have signed on. I mean where is he now? I predict another commercially successful major fail for this flick as well.

Where is Timothy Olyphant now?

Leading and executive producing one of the top rated cable shows? One that has had him getting Emmy nominations and Saturn awards?

I was refering to movies. While I do appreciate TV and find that its a great medium most hollywood actors still want to do movies primarily. I cant remember seeing him in any recently...

So this time, are they going to cast Jason Statham like they should ha...

...Paul Walker...

... Never mind.

Nah, he's who everyone says but isn't Agent 47 supposed to be stiff lipped upperclass? Like someone that got lost on the way to butler school?
Jason Statham is rough and tumble blue collar.
