on Monday, May 24, 2010

It's been reported that Fox has signed Spanish director, Daniel Benmayor to direct the "Hitman" sequel which is scheduled for a possibly 2011 release. The sequel is under the title of, "Hitman 2".
Adrian Askarieh, Alex Young and Chuck Gordon are producing the sequel, and Daniel Alter is executive producer. Kyle Ward wrote the script which includes elements from the fifth "Hitman" game.
It's been rumored that Timothy Olyphant may or may not return for the sequel. We'll just have to see. I think he'll return, but I'm not sure also. Before the sequel was announced, it was reported that Fox were gonna reboot it instead with a new actor, seeing as the first film was universaly panned by the critics and didn't do well in the box-office. The new actor would have most likely Vin Diesel, who was the original actor for the role of Agent 47 for the film back in 2007.
