How about making it more like a good movie?

I completely forgot about 2007′s Hitman, starring Timothy Olyphant as bald assassin Agent 47, based on the superior video game series of the same name. Maybe that was my brain’s way of dealing with the trauma. Well, consider the wound freshly opened.

Hitman producers Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon recently spoke about Hitman 2: The Hittening. They’re looking to make a sequel that feels more like Hitman: Absolution, IO Interactive’s new installment of the game, coming in 2012. How about making it more like a good movie instead? Here’s a quote from Askarieh:

“Everyone would very much like to have both the game and the movie released in the same window. Whether the film is a sequel or a reboot, we think the past five years has seen a pent-up demand by gamers for Agent 47 and 2012 is shaping up to be a big year for Hitman.”

My demand has been so pent up, you guys. The producers are currently working with Fox International on the project, off a screenplay by Daniel Casey. No word yet if Olyphant wants to shave his head again for round two. (Hollywood Reporter via Yahoo! Movies)

Sony Moving Ahead With ‘Hitman 2′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sony-moving-ahead-with-hitman-2/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sony-moving-ahead-with-hitman-2/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Showcasing Olga Kurlylenko's maybe-penis on its poster helped Hitman earn a $70 million profit, so it's no surprise that Sony wants to make another one. The studio is eyeballing Spanish director Daniel Benmayor to helm but there's no word if Timothy Olyphant will be returning. Though they do have an option on him should they decide to hold him down and shave his head again.Benmayor's claim to fame so far is the feature Paintball, a movie about weekend warriors who discover someone is using live ammo in their paintball game. Sounds like the second act of Child's Play 3 before they randomly end up at that carnival. Chucky should really try to avoid places where there's the possibility of falling into a giant fan. Yeah. But anyway, Hitman 2. (Deadline)
