20th Century Fox has released a new international poster for their upcoming action-packed video game-to-film adaptation, Hitman: Agent 47.
This is the second attempt at adapting the popular Hitman video game. The first time it was done Justified and Deadwood star Timothy Olyphant had the title role, but this time we'll see Homeland star Rupert Friend as the lethal assassin.
He'll be joined by Hannah Ware, Zachary Quinto, Ciarán Hinds and Thomas Kretschmann. The film is being directed by Aleksander Bach, based on a screenplay by Skip Woods and Michael Finch.
Check out the poster below.
Hitman: Agent 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones -- endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.
Hitman: Agent 47 will fire into theaters August 28, 2015
