Critics said the first movie in 2007 totally sucked but that didn't stop it from raking in over $100 million.
Therefore, as reported by Deadline , Fox International Productions has given the go to a "Hitman" reboot called "Agent 47." The big difference is that instead of Timothy Olyphant ("I Am Number Four," "Justified") playing the bald assassin, it's going to be Paul Walker ("Fast and the Furious," "Timeline").
The scribe who penned the first script, Skip Woods, will once again write the story for the movie, and Aleksander Bach is on board to direct. It's a little unsettling to know that this will be his big-screen debut; up until this point, he has only directed commercials. The film is essentially a reboot and it'll be shot in Berlin and Singapore this summer, not long after Walker finishes up with "Fast and Furious 6." Charles Gordon ("Die Hard," "Alex Young (The A-Team)") and Adrian Askarieh ("Hitman") will produce, while Daniel Alter ("The Apparition") will be the executive producer.
Anybody holding out hope for a good movie?
