'Homelands' Rupert Friend to Replace Paul Walker in 'Hitman' Reboot

Today The Hollywood Reporter announced that TNT's Homeland star Rupert Friend is set to replace Paul Walker in the upcoming Hitman reboot titled Agent 47. This comes after Paul Walker tragically died last month in a car accident. Its currently being penned by Skip Woods (A Good Day to Die Hard) and will be directed by Aleksander Bach.

This will be based off the highly successful video game series and the not so great previous movie adaptions.
47 is a genetically engineered elite assassin with a barcode tattooed on the back of his head. In the original film, he is hired by a group known only as ‘The Organization’ and is ensnared in a political conspiracy, which finds him pursued by both Interpol and the Russian military as he treks across Russia and Eastern Europe.
