[Movies] Ciaran Hinds Joins Agent 47 Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.14.2014
The veteran actor joins the Hitman adaptation...
Ciaran Hinds is set to appear in Agent 47. THR reports that the Game of Thrones and Munich star has joined the film in an undisclosed role; he joins Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, Thomas Kretschmann and Dan Bakkedahl in the film.
The film is based on the Hitman game franchise, which follows a genetically-engineered assassin named Agent 47 who was created from the recombinant DNA of five of the world's most dangerous criminals. The fact that the DNA came from multiple ethnicities allows 47 to blend in to a certain degree in most places in the world, or at least not look immediately suspicious and out-of-place. His name comes from the last two digits of a bar code on the back of his head – 640509-040147. He is a tall, bald, blue-eyed, no-nonsense individual and usually wears a suit with black leather gloves and a red tie and is known to disguise himself. Engineered from conception to be the perfect killer, 47's strength, speed, and intellect are above the human norm.
