Fox International Contracts Betrayal’s Hannah Ware as Female Lead for Hitman Movie Reboot, “Agent 47”
Agent 47, the Fox International-led reboot for the Hitman film series, recently underwent some recent casting changes, as actor Rupert Friend replaced the late Paul Walker in the lead role late last year, and Zachary Quinto came on board last week to enter a supporting role for the upcoming film.
A new casting report from Variety details that Hannah Ware, previously seen in both the big and small screen on ABC’s Betrayal and the recently released Oldboy by Spike Lee, is set to play the female lead role in the upcoming Agent 47. Following up to the original film, Hitman, released in 2007 and starring Justified‘s Timothy Olyphaunt, Agent 47 acts as primarily as a reboot to the film franchise and will maintain ties to the popular Hitman series.
Agent 47 is currently set to begin production this March, with a release date currently unknown at this time.
