FILM: Hitman Movie Cast

The role of Agent 47, the unforgettable character from the Hitman video game franchise, has been cast, and surprisingly it's not Vin Diesel

Actor Timothy Olyphant will play Agent 47. Olyphant is known for his roles in Scream 2, Rock Star, and The Girl Next Door. He also plays the character of Seth Bullock on HBO's Deadwood.

Now, I like Timothy Olyphant but I think he's the wrong choice for Agent 47. The hitman is supposed to be extremely cold, reserved, and precise where Olyphant is known for being a bit, how can I put this, silly. He does have the chiseled jaw found on the video game character and I'm sure he'll look the part when bald, but I can't see him adding much more to the part. It'll be interesting to see where he takes the character but I can't see him in the role, at least as of now.



Dougray Scott (Mission Impossible II, Desperate Housewives) has also been cast in the film and will play a man who's task it is to take down Agent 47.

Another notable is that retired French director Luc Besson (Taxi, The Fifth Element) is producing the film. Now, I'd be much happier if he was directing this adaptation but it's being done by Xavier Gens (Sable noir, Frontieres). I'm not sure if I can put much faith into Gens with this project as he's quite green but I'm excited to see where this film goes.

I don't have high expectations for Hitman, but it should be worth a look.

Cheers.

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet
effective. A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you have done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari. Outstanding Blog!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and all. However think about
if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts
more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video
clips, this site could certainly be one of the very best in
its niche. Great blog!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into
any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either authored myself or outsourced

Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being ripped
