Vin Diesel is Hitman


Recommended Posts

Source: Variety


Vin Diesel will star as Agent 47 in 20th Century Fox's upcoming adaptation of Hitman, the best-selling video game franchise from Eidos and developer IO Interactive.


Diesel also will serve as executive producer. Charles Gordon and Adrian Askarieh are producing through their respective companies, Daybreak Productions and Prime Universe Productions. Daniel Alter will co-produce.


The game's story centers on an international assassin known as Agent 47 who works for a mysterious organization dubbed the Agency. The first three games in the franchise have sold more than 10 million units. Eidos plans to release another sequel, "Hitman: Blood Money," this fall.


"'Hitman' is a project that by the virtue of its DNA can and will reach far beyond its already substantial core audience," Askarieh said. "The canvas on which this adventure takes place is something that movie audiences have embraced for the last 40 years. We obviously are delighted to have Vin Diesel on board, too -- he and Agent 47 are a match made in heaven."

read this earlier today, this might be good, or just plain terrible as are all games to movies/vin diesel films.

It's Vin Diesel. I'm leaning toward plain terrible.

Please review my fanfic!

Vin's a good 2nd choice. Jason Statham would have been better.

The area between the balls and the butt is a hotbed of terrorist activity.

Stallone is making Rambo 4 (actually, technically the numbering isFirst Blood 4: Rambo 3, but nobody seems too worried). He is writing, directing and starring in it at the age of 58.

The First Blood/Rambo thing bothers me, just like Jedi Knight 2 shoulda been Dark Forces 3.

Or like SWAT 4. It should have been Police Quest 9. ^_^

Well, if it means it's being made, it's fine by me. It still has the potential to be a good action flick. And it's not like it'll be an extremely draining performance for Vin since good ol' 47 wasn't exactly what we would call... expressive.

- When he is best, he is a little worse than a man, and when he is worst, he is little better than a beast.

I had absolutely no respect for Vin Diesel (only seen Pitch Black and xXx, which were both crap) until I played the game The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay. Now I think he rocks.

Swedes, go to: Spel2, for the latest game reviews in swedish!
