Comic Con goers who managed to get into Hall H for 20th Century Fox’s panel saw the first trailer for Aleksander Bach’s “Agent 47,” the remake of “Hitman” that was originally supposed to star Paul Walker before his untimely passing. “Homeland’s” Rupert Friend has since taken over the role, and while no trailers have been officially released yet, you can check out 6 new images from the movie featuring Friend and his, er, friends as they go about wielding guns and dodging bullets and whatnot.
Let me take this moment to say that I’ve seen the 2007 movie by Xavier Gens a number of times (mostly on cable) and it’s actually pretty good. I don’t recall seeing the film on the big screen, but Timothy Olyphant as the bald killer was aces, so I’m a bit surprised they didn’t just do a sequel. Instead, they’ve decided to reboot it. Wouldn’t a sequel be easier?
Anyways, check out the new images below. The movie also co-stars Spock from “Star Trek.”
Starring Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, Thomas Kretschmann, Dan Bakkedahl, and Ciaran Hinds.
