Hitman Agent 47 is an upcoming American thriller based of the widely popular video game Hitman. The film starts Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, and Thomas Kretschmann. While the video games have been around for many years, in this film we find Agent 47 is tasked with the job of finding the daughter of the creator of “The Agent Program” which somehow led to the creation of Agent 47.
This film has been in development for many years. In February 2013, the late Paul Walker was attached to play the lead, Agent 47. Unfortunately, we lost Walker in a car crash in late November 2013. It wasn’t until January 2014 that Rupert Friend was cast for the role.

HITMAN: AGENT 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.
