The first Hitman movie wasn't bad at all. I thought Timothy Olyphant did a excellent job in his portrayal of Agent 47. As far as video game to movies go, it was pretty good. But this upcoming remake looks like it might do a little better in the box offices. It's only somewhat hard to believe they're doing a remake so soon, as the original came out 2007, but time doesn't seem to be an issue any more for movie makers. I think the casting did an awesome, although the rumor mills have stated the lead role would have gone to Paul Walker if not for his untimely death. Regardless, I think Rupert Friend will give the role the justice it deserves.
