Later today we'll get to see some footage from 20th Century Fox's franchise sequel Hitman: Agent 47 during the studio's Comic-Con panel in Hall H. This time it's not Timothy Olyphant in the role, but rather Rupert Friend as the bald, genetically engineered assassin from the video game series of the same name. There are no story details just yet, but we do have some first look photos of Friend in action with co-star Hannah Ware as Katia van Dees. But as of now, no sign of Zachary Quinto in the film. We're not excited about the film yet, especially with a February 2015 release, but maybe some good footage can convince us.
Here's the first look photos from Aleksander Bach's Hitman: Agent 47 from 20th Century Fox:
Hitman: Agent 47 is directed by Aleksander Bach, making his feature directorial debut with a script from Kyle Ward (Machete Kills), Skip Woods (The A-Team) and Michael Finch (Predators). Based on the top-selling, award-winning videogame franchise, the sequel follows an elite and genetically engineered assassin, known only by the last two digits – 47 – from a barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. Rupert Friend takes the title role in the film that also stars Hannah Ware, Zachary Quinto, Ciaran Hinds, and Thomas Kretschmann. 20th Century Fox releases the film early next year on February 27th, 2015. Well?
