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.

Wait, What? Fox To Redo ‘Hitman’ Movie With Paul Walker As Agent 47

2007’s Hitman was not a very good movie, for a number of reasons. But instead of moving forward on a sequel to the movie, as was in the works for a long while, Fox has instead decided that they’re going to reboot and start over. No objections here!

But wait, there is most certainly more. Hopes for a better adaptation of the popular game series will be instantly put to the test by word that Paul Walker, star of the Fast and Furious franchise and Into the Blue, will be playing Agent 47 this time around, and that the movie itself will be titled Agent 47 as well.

Die Hard

The cast of the fifth installment in the Die Hard franchise is coming together, with two new actors now jumping on board.

It’s being reported that Amaury Nolasco and Megalyn Echikunwoke have both joined the cast of the movie, which is titled A Good Day to Die Hard. They join star Bruce Willis, returning to the (hopefully once again vulgar) role of John McClane, with Spartacus: Blood and Sand star Jai Courtney co-starring as McClane’s son, Jack.

‘Die Hard 5’ & Bruce Willis Find Their Director In Noam Murro

It’s been no secret since the release of Live Free or Die Hard, the fourth installment in the franchise, that star Bruce Willis was planning on making more at some point in the future.

Movement has been speeding up lately on what’s simply being called Die Hard 5 at the moment, and now the flick’s director has been chosen by 20th Century Fox and Willis. Deadline is reporting that Noam Murro will be taking the wheel on the project, which could become his third feature film.

Murro has only one completed credit to his name — 2008’s Smart People, which starred Ellen Page, Dennis Quaid, Thomas Hayden Church, and Sarah Jessica Parker — and has another currently in production called Hateship, Friendship, Courtship. These aren’t the credits of someone you would see directing a Die Hard movie, but these movies are also not what stood out to those who hired Murro — it was his work on some popular live-action Halo shorts made for the release of Halo: Reach that caught eyes and won him the job. You can see the videos below if you missed them.

‘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.
