Hitman Movie

so i was surfing through imdb .. and i came across this page

hitman movie

I couldnt think of anyone better to play Agent 47, though his voice seems a bit too deep.

Hopefully its not another poor game-to-movie conversion.


I call him GAMBLOR!!

I wanted Jason Statham to play Hitman 47 instead. Vin Diesel is way to built for the role 47 isn't supposed to be that buff, plus Jason already has the accent in him.

Not to offend anyone, but Vin Diesel?! How ghey....no pun intended...

I won't see this film on general principles.

Yeah, I think Vin Diesel doesn't really have that Hitman in him. He's more of a "bang-bang, slaughter-slaughter, mission accomplished" kind of person while they should get a "sneak-sneak, strangle-strangle, silenced bang, mission accomplished" kind of a person.
And I really don't know how you can get a plot for a movie from Hitman. It might just be hard enought that it'll make the movie crash and burn

I just hope they focus on the stealth aspect of the Hitman games instead of making it an all out shooting explosions and whatnot movie.

Hate when they make movies out of games, 90% of them are so bad. They just slaugther the hole story of the game, then make some figthing scenes, and people will see it just because it have the game name. And it will be even worse with Vin Disel in it, not that i think he is bad, but all his movies are focused on figthing, not sneaking

Vin Diesel is a TERRIBLE actor to play in the role of Agent 47. As mentioned earlier, Jason Statham is beyond the perfect actor for the role. He has the look, the moves, the sound, and is overall much more awesome.

Booooo Vin Diesel.

That's probably the problem. People would just think that Jason Statham is playing almost exactly the same role.

Vin Diesel is not on my list of favorite actors by any means, but his prestige as an action movie star will surely draw in alot of attention, which is probably why he was picked.

Vin Diesel sucks just as an actor. I'm sure he's a good person, but well, maybe he missed his calling as a wal-mart manager because acting just doesn't suit him. Seeing him cast for Hitman brings on the same reaction as when I saw that The Rock was cast in Doom: "Aw, Crap!"

Pass.

I just watched Crank.. that is a cool hitman film. Jason Statham kicks butt as usual.. but in a much more fun way than The Transporter.

But it makes me think.. the plot for Hitman is so SPECTACULARLY GENERIC that i don't see the point in liscencing the game. They could just make any old movie about a hitman.. call it "hitman" and have a generic action movie.

I never understand why they insiste on taking generic games and making them into genre movies.. when they could just make the damn movie and forget the game.. and avoid pissing off a lot of game fans in the process.

Hmm. His face looks more like a Max Payne than an Agent 47 imo.Timothy Olyander's had a wide range of acting roles though so that's good. I'll reserve judgement until I see the movie.

There was already a thread on this and my opinion from that thread still stands: Vin Diesel as Hitman? No. Please, for the love of... anything, no. David Bateson (the voice actor from the game, he looks almost completely like 47), or, as others suggest, Jason Statham would be much better.

Hmm, I didn't think Agent 47 was some kind of Messiah. I thought he was a hitman, and killed for money. :/

This is making me wanna try the games again

I only played the first one, and I got pretty far into it, but for some reason or another I never finished and just kinda dropped the series. But I remember really enjoying it.

"To bring us peace"?. I think the people working on the film might be missing the point of the games.

i think it was just supposed to show the irony of the statement, cause the statement says all this stuff about messiah and peace, yet shows clips of him going around shooting people and killing them. who knows tho.

Hey, wanna know who'd be the perfect actor for 47? The guy that voices him in the games, who coincidentaly is who the person the character model of 47 is made from. Even better, the guy isn't just some voice actor - he apparently has some acting experience. Yay Hollywood! You make me sick.

"Some acting experience"

Just because he looks and sounds the part doesn't mean he can act it out accordingly...

...riiiiiiiiiight. Its not like he hasn't been doing the part for...well, I don't have my Hitman discs handy to check the date on the first one, but its been a hell of a lot longer than anyone else who Hollywood is pining over.

And besides, its not like 47 is this insanely animated character. You could get a guy whose been beaten over the head with a bag of hot nickles to play him.

I'll probably end up seeing then, since I'm a big fan of the games, but I still don't understand why they make it sound like he works for the church.
