Default Agent 47 (Hitman reboot with Paul Walker)


Quote:
"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."

I didn't think that the Hitman movie was too bad.

Timothy Olyphant was a much better fit for the role than Paul Walker. I would have preferred a decent sequel with Olyphant reprising the role. But I'll admit, I am curious to see what they do with a reboot.

All the semi-original stories out there, and FOX decides to re-boot a videogame movie that obviously no one cared for in the first place starring one of the most non-actingest actors in Hollywood.

God, I can't wait until this bombs, but then I'm sure they'll do another one in 2019 starring Justin Beiber.

I actually liked the first one, as they casted Olyphant correctly. As for Walker; he CAN act, but it will be up to him to pull it together, and deliver. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

So you go from a great actor in Timothy Olyphant to a terrible actor? Ugh.

I like Paul Walker and all but this just does not seem right for him. All I can picture is him in Running Scared.

The first one is a piece of shit, but it's kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. I enjoy it when I watch it because they weren't afraid of an R rating. Well the Unrated cut furthers that, but my point stands. I'm not against Paul Walker. Honestly, I don't care one way or the other. I just look forward to seeing another iteration.

The first one was fine, especially Olga Kurylenko. However not sure how PW will pull this off. But would be curious how this one comes out.

While the news of the reboot isn't surprising, because it was hinted at last year, the casting really surprises me...Olyphant was actually quite good in the first film, where as I find Walker to be terribly wooden in most things, other than 'Running Scared'. I'm hoping for the best here though, and as long as the movie is entertaining, I'll be happy.

An odd choice for sure. I'm with everybody else who thought that Timothy Olyphant was really good in the role of 47. He gave off the cold-hearted badass-ness that the character needed. I'm really curious, though. Will Paul Walker completely shave his head for the role?

Paul Walker, what the hell?

Vin Diesel and Jason Statham would have made better Agent 47s.
