It's definite that there will be a Hitman movie. But they were looking for the wrong guy to play him. First, there was Vin Diesel. I don't think he fits the role. Now they're talking about some crappy actor from Deadwood. Am I the only one who thinks that Jason Statham (The Transporter) is the obvious best choice?! I really wonder if they even considered him.
He most certainly fits the role, but my question is - Does he fit any other role? He's been in the same move like six times with different titles, don't get me wrong they're not bad movies, but variety isn't necessarily a bad thing
Most of the movies he's done, it is pretty much the same character. A lot of his earlier stuff is different though. I definitely wouldn't have chosen the clown that they picked. He's some guy from Deadwood. He doesn't look like he would fit the role at all.
