The Hitman reboot is back on...
Deadline reports that Zachary Quinto has joined the cast of Agent 47, the sequel/reboot to Fox International's Hitman. He will join the film just after his run on stage in New York, where he has received critical praise for The Glass Menagerie.
Paul Walker was set to star in Agent 47 before his tragic death last year. The project was postponed from its February start date and recast with Rupert Friend (Homeland) taking the title role. Aleksander Bach will direct from a script by Skip Woods and Michael Finch. The film starts shooting in March. Chuck Gordon, Alex Young and Adrian Askarieh will produce, with Daniel Alter executive producing.
The original Hitman was released in 2007 and starred Timothy Olyphant and Dougray Scott. It earned $99.6 million worldwide with international box office coming in at $60.2 million.
