The second film based on IO Interactive’s Hitman franchise stars Homeland actor Rupert Friend as Agent 47, and Zachary Quinto as the lead villain, John Smith.
“Based on the top-selling, award-winning videogame franchise, “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,” reads Fox’s synopsis, in part. “His latest target is a young woman on the run from powerful and clandestine forces. The mission brings startling revelations about the lethal agent and his prey, hurtling them on a collision course with their pasts. And this time, his number may be up.”
