Paul Walker will play Agent 47 – replacing Timothy Olyphant – in an upcoming Hitman movie. While we all desperately try to understand who makes these casting decisions, Deadline
reports the movie's title is Agent 47
and will be written by the folks behind A Good Day To Die Hard
. First-time feature film director Aleksander Back will helm the project.
The Hitman movie starring Olyphant from 2007 grossed $100 million worldwide despite its imperfect execution. The new film will begin filming in Berlin and Singapore this summer after Walker wraps promotion for Fast And Furious 6
