20th Century Fox has offered a first look at Rupert Friend (Homeland) as the bald, barcode-branded, suit-wearing assassin Agent 47 in the upcoming film Hitman: Agent 47.
Originally the late Paul Walker was cast in the leading role when the film was first announced last year, but following his tragic death, Friend was recast to play the part. Hitman: Agent 47 is a reboot, and has no connection to 2007′s Hitman that starred Timothy Olyphant (Justified).
During a panel at Comic-Con, 20th Century Fox debuted the first footage of the film, but you’ll have to wait to see that sadly. However, two stills were released that you can check out above and below. Friend wasn’t at the panel due to filming Homeland, but co-stars Zachary Quinto and Hannah Ware were in attendance. Quinto will play the character of John Smith, while Ware plays Katia van Dees.
Hitman: Agent 47 will be in theaters on February 27, 2015.
