[Movies] Homeland Star Replacing Paul Walker in Hitman Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.09.2014
The film is moving ahead...
As you may recall, Paul Walker was set to star in a new film adaptation of the Hitman video game. Walker, of course, tragically died late last year and that put a stop to the project, but it is now moving forward again with Rupert Friend in the lead role. THR reports that the actor, best known recently for his role as Quinn on Homeland, will take the titular role in the film which is beng titled Agent 47.
The film was written by Skip Woods, who also wrote the 2007 adaptation that starred Timothy Olyphant. There is no word on a release date or storyline for the film; commercials director Aleksander Bach will helm it.
