In case you didn’t know, a new Hitman movie will be coming to movie theaters soon. Hitman: Agent 47 is a reboot of the movie franchise which will focus more on the infamous titular character and what makes him who he is.
Here is the movie’s official description:
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.
The movie will star Rupert Friend as Agent 47, Hannah Ware as Katia van Dees, and Zachary Quinto as John Smith. It is directed by Aleksander Bach with a story by Skip Woods. It will be released in theaters on August 21.
