‘Hitman: Agent 47′ Delayed Six Months
Pulling off the perfect assassination can take time, so 'Hitman: Agent 47' has been hit with a delay.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fox International's big screen debut of 'Hitman: Agent 47' has been delayed by six months. Originally scheduled to hit theaters on Feb. 27, 2015, Agent 47 is to star Rupert Friend of 'Homeland' fame as the movie's title character. Spook 2.0 himself, Zachary Quinto, will play the lead villain alongside Thomas Kretschmann, known for his work in 'Stalingrad.' The movie's director, Aleksander Bach, has no noteworthy projects under his belt besides a couple foreign music videos and an indie short film from a few years ago. Based on our experiences watching Hollywood movies by European directors whose work primarily consisted of music videos that never even made it to MTV 2, we're rather reluctant on 'Hitman: Agent 47.' Hopefully, we won't have to add an "S" in front of the title after watching it. With Quinto as the lead villain, we're expecting a lot more out of this Hitman project than the abysmal 2007 movie that had Timothy Olyphant wrongfully cast as Agent 47.
'Hitman: Agent 47' will hit theaters on Aug. 28, 2015.
