OFFICIAL: First Look At Rupert Friend As The New HITMAN!

The official Facebook and Twitter accounts for 20th Century Fox’s slated title Hitman: Agent 47 just unveiled its first, teaser poster for the said film, providing us a good look at the new face of the aforementioned franchise: Rupert Friend.

Friend was invited for the role of the iconic 47 after Paul Walker(who was supposed to take the lead) passed away. The movie will not be having any connections with the previous Hitman entry, and is thus, a stand-alone story.

The plot focuses on a young woman named Katia van Dees who teams up with Agent 47 in order to find her father and her true ancestry. They both discover that Katia is a genetically engineered assassin just like 47. Together, they fight the Syndicate to find Katia’s father.

Hitman: Agent 47 will hit theaters February of 2015.
