Olyphant IS Hitman

01.18.2007

Despite what you might read elsewhere on the webernet and what Timothy Olyphant himself might tell you, the actor indeed is set to star in the upcoming adaptation of the hit video game HITMAN. Producer Daniel Alter and subsequently Variety have confirmed that Olyphant has in fact been cast despite telling junketeers covering his next film CATCH AND RELEASE, "I don't think I've ever been officially attached to it" (via Coming Soon). Olyphant replaces Vin Diesel who had originally been cast in the role. Luc Besson will produce the film along with Alter and partner Adrian Askarieh. Newcomer Xavier Gens will direct the film for Fox based on the script by Skip Woods. As previously mentioned, Olyphant can be seen next alongside Jennifer Garner in CATCH AND RELEASE and then this summer as the big baddie in LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD. Filming on HITMAN is scheduled to begin this March in Europe.
