‘Fast & Furious 6′ Star Paul Walker To Play Hitman In ‘Agent 47′

Fox looks to reload the Hitman franchise by enlisting Paul Walker in the central role of Agent 47.

Fox International Productions is rebooting the live action film adaptation of the popular Square Enix video game. In updating Hitman, they’ve set Fast and Furious 6 star Paul Walker to lead the cast as Agent 47.

Directed by Aleksander Bach, a highly regarded commercials director making his feature film debut, and written by Skip Woods and Michael Finch (A Good Day To Die Hard) this film looks to begin production this June, according to Deadline.

While critics weren’t so kind to the first one, which starred Timothy Olyphant as Agent 47, Fox is deciding to do another film after getting the receipt for the $100 million it brought in to the box office.
