For some reason, people don’t seem to be too enthusiastic about Timothy Olyphant playing Agent 47 in the upcoming videogame-to-movie “Hitman”. I really don’t care either way. I’m not a fan of the game, but from what I’ve seen of the movie, it looks somewhat promising. In any case, USA Today has an article on the movie, and they’ve also posted a tag-along new image from the movie, with Timothy Olyphant as Agent 47 (thumbnail to your left, bigger version below). The article is the usual first look stuff, with interviews and a brief history of the game and the actor.
