Hitman movie promotional posterMove over Timpothy Olyphant, the new “Hitman” is here as fans can get their first look at star Rupert Friend in the new film Agent 47.

The new photo arrives via IGN showing the first look at the Homeland star as the genetically engineered and cloned assassin who sports a bald head and a barcode.

Friend was cast the tragic passing of Paul Walker, who was set to play the titular character.

Fox had initially planned for the original film to become the first part of a franchise, with Timothy Olyphant reprising the title role throughout a series of adventures, but the film failed at the box office and with critics.

Agent 47 is the fictional main character from the DC Comics franchise.

Agent 47 also stars Zachary Quinto and Hannah Ware.  Kyle Ward, Skip Woods, and Michael Finch wrote the script and it’s being produced by Chuck Gordon, Alex Young and Adrian Askarieh.  Daniel Alter is executive producing.

Quinto is presumedably the villain in the film, but no details have been released at this time.

There is no released date set either.
