‘Hitman 2’ is the incoming movie from FOX. Fast the Furious mainstay Paul Walker has been cast as the bald one himself, Agent 47.

IGN reports that Walker will lead the reboot, which follows the studio’s previous effort ‘Hitman’ starring Timothy Olyphant.

Director Aleksander Bach – who has only previously directed commercials – is attached, marking his feature film debut.

Don’t scoff though, David Fincher only did commercials for ages before doing Alien 3.
