Hitman: Agent 47 Image Compares Rupert Friend To The Video Game Antihero

If you weren’t already convinced that Homeland actor Rupert Friend looked the part of the bald, unnamed assassin at the heart of upcoming video game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47, here’s a new pic (below) that directly compares the actor to his computer-generated counterpart. Thoughts?

Friend definitely looks drastically different from how he did as a different assassin, CIA operative Peter Quinn, on Homeland, but no actual footage has slipped out of Comic-Con yet from the film, so it would be wise to reserve judgment for a while.

On paper, Hitman: Agent 47 does seem like it could be an entertaining, undemanding actioner. It’s adapted from a popular video game franchise, centers on a genetically engineered assassin taking on a dangerous mission and co-stars Hannah Ware, Zachary Quinto, Thomas Kretschmann and Ciaran Hinds. So long as the movie doesn’t fall prey to the video game adaptation trope of convoluted, dunder-headed storytelling, that cast and premise should render it a fine way to waste a couple of few hours next year.

Aleksander Bach is making his directorial debut on Hitman: Agent 47, which was scripted by Michael Finch, Kyle Ward and Skip Woods. It’s due to open in theaters on February 27th, 2015.


Based on the top-selling, award-winning videogame franchise, “Hitman: Agent 47” is an all-new motion picture about an elite and genetically engineered assassin, known only by the last two digits – 47 – of a barcode tattooed on the back of his neck.
