Hitman kicks off

04.24.2007

Fox has announced that production on the adaptation of popular video game HITMAN has begun this week in Sofia. No the film will not take place solely in the ample cleavage of Sofia Vergara but Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. Co-starring in the film with Timothy Olyphant and Dougray Scott are a veritable who's who of actors. And by who's who, I mean who??? There's Olga Kurylenko (OK, she's pretty hot, Robert Knepper, Ulrich Thomsen, and Michael Offei. According to the official synopsis, the plot goes a little sumpin like this: "Agent 47 (Olyphant) has been educated to become a professional assassin for hire, whose most powerful weapons are his nerve and a resolute pride in his work. 47 is both the last two digits of the barcode tattooed on the nape of his neck, and his only name. The hunter becomes the hunted when 47 gets caught up in a political takeover. Both Interpol and the Russian military chase the HITMAN across Eastern Europe as he tries to find out who set him up and why they’re trying to take him out of the game. But the greatest threat to 47’s survival may be the stirrings of his conscience and the unfamiliar emotions aroused in him by a beautiful, damaged girl…" AWWWWW. What a sweetie. No word yet on when HITMAN will hit theaters here in the States.

how can you have "the hunter" become "the hunted" when there really is no charcater development or anything of that nature? i could maybe see this happening if they were to make a sequel (which is inevitable, you and i know it)...but not in the first goddamn movie! just have it to where 47 just started as a hitman/badass, and go from there. i guess the only good thing about this movie thus far is that uwe boll isnt directing it.

well, it did pretty much capture the plot of the games, so I'll give it that, at least.

I don't know....I guess if I've seen everything else, I'll give it a shot (no pun intended).

Ha ha.


I love it when movie synopsis tell you what happens in the flick, but not what the movie is about. Though I don't imagine that this thing has a really strong theme anyway.

...Will someone tell me PLEASE how Jason Statham wasn't the only choice for Agent 47 again? Olyphant's not bad, but Statham was born with the look and attitude, although he'd have to do a bit of a better accent change than he did for The One.

My only concern is that they at least try to get the spirit of the games in. Cold intelligence and locations that'll just make you just go "oh damn".

Fridge is write on...

I couldn't agree more with what Fridge suggested. I was thinking exactly the same thing as I read the plot synopsis. Where's the 'Hitman' part of this movie anyway?

hollywood really knows how to fuck up a videogame based movie.. why cant they just start the movie from him being cloned and being created. to training and his first assassin mission?

this movie sounds like they skipped hitman 1 and 2 and went straight to hitman: contracts.
