Here’s Your First Look at Rupert Friend Suiting Up as Agent 47


Agent 47 in Hitman

Here’s your first look at “Homeland” star Rupert Friend as the suited hitman in director Aleksander Bach’s “Agent 47,” a supposed “re-imagining” of the videogame franchise and the 2007 movie starring “Justified’s” Timothy Olyphant. I’ve seen the 2007 flick a couple of times now on TV, and it actually holds up pretty well. I’m honestly not sure why Olyphant didn’t become a big movie star after that, or why the movie wasn’t as well-received when it first open seven years ago.

Anyways, here’s your first look at Friend as the hitman in “Agent 47.” The movie co-stars “Star Trek’s” Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware as the love interest, and Emilio Rivera.

It’s already in production, so I’m guessing late 2014 release date, or thereabouts.

As for the plot, well, he’s a bald dude with a nice suit and a barcode on the back of his neck. Plus, he kills people. So you can pretty much guess the plot, right? Lots of cool action and silenced handguns going pfft! pfft! pfft! would be my guess.

    Nix, I’m guessing “Justified” takes up a lot of Olyphant’s time, being an executive producer and all. It’s become his baby. I would’ve loved to see him back in the part though, plus when i see him in Hitman, I automatically think “Damn he would’ve rocked the part of Luthor!!!” Luke goss should’ve gotten this franchise. He has a fan following and everything. But this dude looks the part too.

    This role was made for Jason Statham. He has the look, the skills, and the attitude. To choose anyone else is ridiculous!

      too low budget for such a big star. But I agree he would’ve been good too.
