As it creeps closer to starting shooting, Hitman reboot Agent 47 is starting to gather more of the cast it needs. With Rupert Friend and Zachary Quinto already aboard, Hannah Ware is the latest addition.
How Ware fits into the plot hasn’t been specified; indeed, Variety’s report gives no indication of the plot at all (so maybe it's just like the last film, ahaha). We do know that Friend is set to play the barcode tattooed agent and assassin whose bald bonce is the iconic image of the games from which the film is drawn, but beyond that Skip Woods and Michael Finch's script is a mystery.
Aleksander Bach is the man charged with making this version of the Hitman franchise fly higher, hoping that the success of the game’s latest outing, Absolution, powers awareness, after selling 10 million copies. The cameras should start rolling next month.
Ware is a veteran of US cable drama Boss and was last seen on the big screen in Oldboy. She’s currently found as one of the leads on the drama Betrayal, but Agent 47 will be her next film job.
