Paul Walker starring in Hitman reboot

One would’ve thought his “Fast & Furious” co-star would’ve been the more ideal choice but nonetheless Paul Walker is set to play bald video-game character ‘Agent 47’ in a film reboot of “Hitman”, according to Deadline.

Timothy Olyphant played the character in the 2007 adaptation.

Aleksander Bach will make his directorial debut on “Agent 47”, working from a script by Skip Woods (who wrote the first film incarnation) and Mike Finch.

The movie, which will shoot after Walker has wrapped his “Fast & Furious 6” PR duties, will shoot in Berlin and Singapore.
