Hitman 2 coming

Jun. 25, 2009by: Omar Aviles

HITMAN Even though the video game adapted HITMAN was thrashed by critics and didn't exactly blow up at the box office, it made decent enough bank that Fox has apparently decided it merits a sequel. The IESB reported a couple of days ago, with Variety confirming today, that Fox has hired hot young scribe Kyle Ward to pen the sequel. Ward got the job after adapting the video game "Kane and Lynch" for Lionsgate, a film which already has Bruce Willis attached to star and Simon Crane to direct. In the HITMAN sequel, the titular Agent 47 "must build himself back up psychologically and physically to reclaim his mantle as the world's most feared assassin." Umm, riiight. The story is apparently based on the upcoming "Hitman 5" video game. No word on whether Timothy Olyphant will be back to reprise his role as Agent 47 but it's possible.

Extra Tidbit: Goddamn, there's 5 of these already?

Why?

The Hitman movie sucked. It ruined the game for me just like Max Payne and Resident Evil did and all the other crappy videogame movies ever made.

The first movie was much better than I expected. I would rent the sequel.

And the Kane and Lynch movie should be cool too even though the actual game sucked, the story was pretty good.

TTOP33...

Hitman was very much rated R.

Doesn't matter, the movie still sucked. I'm sure the second one will too.

Ever since this decade began, Fox has been constantly churning out crap. Why?

I don't care about the movie, but hearing that the video game is still in the works is good news to me.

I'm all for it

I enjoyed the first one. I find it great that people really don't like the first one and call it shabby filmmaking but still run off to see Transformers and Wolverine and Terminator and so on and so forth.

The first one, while not amazing, was different than most of the movies being put out in recent years. It was more reserved in it's action and I think people didn't know how to take that. But it works. Olyphant is a good actor and did a fine job.

I think this one will be funner. Lesser

I think this one will be funner. Lesser quality in film making, since fans don't seem to like that sort of stuff with their movie, and just more fights and things blowing up.

God I hate Michael Bays impact on the movie world.

who the fuck approves this shit?

This movie was mediocre.. straight to dvd AT BEST, and now there's a sequel in the works? Is there even an audience for this? It's like the Punisher sequel.. it's guaranteed to fail.

Funny thing

The screenplay for Hitman was actually quite good. Quite remarkable, really. It was only in post-production that Fox ordered revised edits and reshoots to make it more an appealing action movie, as opposed to the more psychologically leaning script.

It shocks me the kind of mediocre films they will green light sequels for now. But Lara Croft got a sequel and Resident Evil somehow got 2, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised this video game movie is getting one also.

Three Letters

F.O.X. A word synonymous with garbage. Only a company so fcking dumb would make a movie named Hitman and have it pg13.

Could be okay but the first one was so completely disjointed and forgettable. I saw it in the theater and can't remember it in the least...And there's something about Olyphant that just wasn't sitting right with me in it...

Looking forward

The first one could of been better so I hope they learned from their mistake with the new one.
