Fox International’s video game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47 has been pushed back six months from February 27, 2015, to August 28, 2015.
The film, based on the popular video game, will star Homeland actor Rupert Friend as the title character while Zachary Quinto plays the lead villain. Thomas Kretschmann (Stalingrad) also plays a villain.
Agent 47 centers on a bald-headed assassin who teams up with a woman (Hannah Ware) to help her find her father and uncover the mysteries of her ancestry.
Aleksander Bach is directing the project, which is a sequel to the 2007 action movie Hitman. Sources said the move was due to the project needing more time to complete the many special effects shots. The movie grew in scope than what was initially planned for when Fox first slotted its release date.
The only other film opening on the new release date is Ethan Hawke thriller Regression.
