New Agent 47 Rupert Friend

Almost one year ago it was reported that Fast and the Furious star Paul Walker would be playing Agent 47 in a new attempt at turning the hit video game series Hitman into a movie. Timothy Olyphant had previously tried his hand at the role, in a movie that ultimately underwhelmed.

Fans of the game were not very excited by the news that Walker was taking on the character next, but no one would have guessed at the time that less than a year later Walker would be gone. Now comes word that Fox has found their replacement for the late actor in the movie, which is titled Agent 47. According to reports, Rupert Friend has entered into negotiations for the role of the well-dressed assassin.

Hitman

Last June we found out that 20th Century Fox had found a new writer in Kyle Ward to begin work on Hitman 2, the sequel to their 2007 adaptation of the popular video game franchise of the same name.

As it often seems to go these days, Fox has decided to go in a new direction, and it may not be the direction that fans were hoping for.

The studio has brought in Daniel Benmayor to direct the sequel, and scribe Daniel Casey to write it. This shows that the studio isn’t looking to spend a ton of money on this project, and are hoping they’ll get lucky with relatively no-name talents. And while this is a terrible sign for fans who have been impatiently waiting another movie, there is a still a small amount of hope.

Kane & Lynch

Nu Image and Millennium Films have released the first teaser poster for their upcoming video game adaptation, Kane & Lynch.

The movie stars Bruce Willis as Kane and Jamie Foxx as Lynch; and though they’re on the poster, they’re not really on the poster, so don’t expect to see just how the superstars will look in the movie just yet. Fans of the title are itchy-curious to see just how the two will look in comparison to the video game characters…especially when it comes to Foxx’s Lynch.

Head on over to the other side to see the first teaser poster from Kane & Lynch. Don’t forget your guns.

Kane & Lynch

As a video game, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men wasn’t the most popular ever to be developed. It also didn’t help at all that the team that made it is the same team responsible for the eternally popular Hitman game series, which hasn’t offered us a new installment in far too long, much to the dismay of its many fans.

Even in the mediocre showing of Kane & Lynch, a movie based on the game has always been in the works, with superstar Bruce Willis attached to star as Kane for just as long. Willis’s involvement went from expected to confirmed back in October, but we’ve wondering since then who would be playing the role of Lynch.

According to screenwriter Kyle Ward, we now have an answer to that question, and that role will be filled by Jamie Foxx.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

As any video game player knows, the Sony Playstation 3 exclusive title Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is one of the more popular titles to be released in the past few years, and that popularity has seemingly doubled with the recent release of the mega-hit sequel Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. As we all fully expected, it was announced back in June that a movie adaptation was in the works, and that Kyle Ward had been tapped to pen the screenplay (Read: Kyle Ward Snags Another Gig; Tapped To Write ‘Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune’ Adaptation). Now comes word that this initial set-up did not work out so well and a brand new plan is in motion.

Latino Review has it on good authority that Mr. Ward is contractually obligated to write the script for another video game adaptation in Hitman 2, and that it would be at least a year before he could get to Uncharted. Instead of waiting for this — a project that they’re itching to get moving immediately — Sony has instead gone out and hired Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write the script.

Drake's Fortune

Kyle Ward, who wrote the script for the Kane & Lynch movie, and was just reported to be writing the sequel to Hitman, has now been given a third video game movie writing job: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.

The popular Playstation 3 game from Sony Computer Entertainment is being developed into a movie by Columbia Pictures, with Marvel Studios founder Avi Arad and his brother Ari Arad‘s Arad Productions producing the movie. Also producing will be Charles Roven and Alex Gartner of Atlas Entertainment.

Drake’s Fortune tells the story of Nathan Drake, an adventurer and descendant of actual explorer Sir Francis Drake, who discovers a diary by his late ancestor that leads the way to the fabled city of gold: El Dorado. As usual, when trying to discover some of the universe’s greatest treasures, things don’t go so well; between rival seekers of the gold city and mutated descendants of Spaniards and Nazis trying to stop him, Nathan Drake is obviously in for a challenge and a kick-ass adventure.

‘Hitman’ Sequel Picks Up A Writer In Kyle Ward

Hitman

We haven’t really heard of any news involving Hitman since the 2007 movie starring Timothy Olyphant as Agent 47 (Including news about the horrifically long-awaited 5th game in the franchise; let’s go Eidos and IO Interactive!). The first movie didn’t exactly fare too well at the box office and was worse-off when it came to critical review, but even so, it was expected that a sequel would eventually come along. Even with the lacking first run, the flick did do better than most would expect of a video game-based movie; that and the property is based on the ultra-popular game franchise, which can always lead to some success.

In what confirms that a script is at least going to be written before deciding the fate of said sequel, IESB has learned that writer Kyle Ward has been hired to pen the sequel. Ward is pretty much a newbie to the game, but he does have a couple of unseen projects in-production: the Kane & Lynch movie with Bruce Willis and a movie called Fiasco Heights that’s set to be made by Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes. Kane & Lynch is of course based on another video game property that is developed by the same group that makes the Hitman games, so all fits together nicely here.
