Agent 47: Rupert Friend Kills As The Video Game Assassin!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The first trailer for Agent 47 has landed and it’s easy to see why filmmakers settled on star Rupert Friend as the title character. The video game comes to life and Friend is electric as Agent 47, a genetically engineered assassin who is on a mission. 

In his sights is Hannah Ware, whose father was the one who created the highly evolved killers. Her only hope is Zachary Quinto (Star Trek), who appears to understand the situation better than anyone and is the key to diffusing this explosively violent situation.

Cirian Hinds, Thomas Kretschmann and Dan Bakkedahl star in first time director Aleksander Bach’s film that is set to land August 28.

Agent 47 is based on the smash hit video game about the tattooed with a barcode on the back of his neck killer who is genetically engineered to be faster, smarter and bolder than any human in history.

And yes, it’s a redo of the 2007 hit film Hitman, that starred Timothy Olyphant. Honestly, from the trailer above, it appears that this film gets the feel of the video game so much more.
