Hitman: Agent 47 is actually the second film based on the movie. The first, Hitman, was released in 2007 starring Timothy Olyphant. It fared well at the box office and received average scores, but based on the looks of the trailer for the new film, it could blow the first one away.
Agent 47 seems to be rebooting the series with an origin story on how to defeat the agents. The trailer starts off with a bang as Agent 47 makes quick work of federal officials and soldiers. There are explosions, shootouts and of course a lovely lady; all the makings of an action movie.
The movie stars Zachary Quinto as John Smith and Rupert Friend as Agent 47. The screenplay was written by Kyle Ward who is also working on another video game adaptation of Kane & Lynch.
