If you were planning to check out the new Hitman movie in February, you'll have to amend your calendar.

According to The Hollywood Reporter , the film's release has been pushed back six months. It'll now hit theaters on August 28, 2015.

Sources claim the delay is due to the necessity of "many special effects shots," which simply require more time. It also seems that the movie has grown in "scope" over the course of production, although we don't have specifics. The film stars "Homeland" star Rupert Friend, who's taking over for Timothy Olyphant, who played the iconic role in the 2007 film. "The Fast and the Furious" lead man Paul Walker was on board for the new movie until he tragically passed away in a car crash last year.

No idea if this film will be any good but it has to be better than the last one, right?

I'm sure it could be worse. Especially since I thought the Timothy Olyphant vehicle was perfectly enjoyable as a film, just not a good 'Hitman' adaptation.

Yeah, I really liked the Hitman movie with Timothy Olyphant.
And, you can't go wrong with Olga Kurylenko. She also looked amazing in November Man. =)
