The hitman games are awesome, and I've been saying for a while a movie adaptation would be a great idea. I wouldn't have thought of Olyphant, but he's a quality actor and if whips out the mach 3 on that noggin, jots a barcode on his neck with a biro, and Besson confirms, we've got a good looking movie. Let's hope they keep the mood and ambiance of the games intact.

captainamazing is right, as long as its more sneaky-roundy and less blow-the-shit-out-of-everything-in-the-world, we could have a great game adaptation for once!

Besson's produced films generally have been shit though. While the action is always cool, every director thats taken the helm doesn't seem to know their arse from their elbow. Hopefully someone with a solid grasp of narrative gets a hold of this

When i heard about this I was excited, very excited! Having spent numerous days and nights sneaking upon enemies and trying to cover my tracks, the thought of seeing this franchise brought to the big screen was a wish come true.

However! When I saw who was cast to play 47 I was shocked. Oly...who!! Then I remembered seeing him in a few things, and while he maybe coming of age as an actor I wouldn't rate him for this part!

There's only one person to play agent 47....Jason Statham. He has all the attributes of a true action hero. He's got grunt, grind and most of all I can see him with a bald head. Olyphant is gonna look like a cicumcised cock!!!

So in light of this I am going to have to go and see it when it finally comes out! I won't be happy about it but I'll do it!!

I'm very dissappointed in Luc Besson's casting. Oly What?. A better choice would have been Vin Deseil and or Jason Statham. After trying the video game i thought u beaut for a movie but now not happy Besson.

This movie will rock.

This is more Christian Slater territory isn't it? Olyphant is too good
