Hitman movie reboot 'Agent 47' to star Paul Walker

Yes, *that* Paul Walker

It's been an unusually long time since I've been able to use the word "reboot" here, but with the recent Hitman Absolution still fresh on our minds, it's only natural that the term would come up in relation to the popular stealth series. Fox International Productions will be rebooting 2007's Hitman film with Paul Walker as Agent 47, reports Deadline.

I'm just going to let that sink in for a moment. As much as I like The Fast and the Furious for reasons beyond logical explanation, I can't picture him with a fully shaved head. That's not to say it can't work -- I'm just lacking the requisite imagination.

This new movie, titled Agent 47, will be directed by feature-film newcomer Aleksander Bach. For those who saw the original, did you enjoy it? From what I recall, it was entirely watchable, but it must have not been particularly memorable because I'm struggling to recall anything of substance.
