Agent 47 is back and he’s on a mission that will leave corpses and destruction in his wake. This is director Aleksander Bach first feature film, at least according to IMDB and it looks to be a fun action packed ride. Michael Finch (Predators, The November Man) and Kyle Ward (Machete Kills) wrote the script for Hitman: Agent 47 which stars Rupert Friend, Hannah Ware, Zachary Quinto, Ciarán Hinds, and Thomas Kretschmann.
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
And here’s trailer:
That looked like a fun movie. Hopefully it will do well enough at the box office to kick-start another in the franchise. The first Hitman movie back in 2007 quadrupled its $24 million dollar budget at the box office worldwide. If this one does as well it should be a nice payday for those involved in its production and lead to additional sequels.
They also made this little video about what happens to people who obtain leaked information and footage of Hitman: Agent 47…. so just be glad this trailer was sent to us by the production ‘s marketing team. You won’t have to look over your shoulder.
Hitman: Agent 47 hits theater screens August 28th, this year. That;s actually a great release date as it will only face Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon II as opening week competition, as well as the other films still in theaters a couple of weeks after their openings like The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and The Fantastic Four reboot.
