According to reports from The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline, Hitman: Agent 47 has been delayed six months from its original release date of February 27th, 2015 to August 28th, 2015.

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.”
