Hitman Film Sequel Gets The Reboot Treatment

Hollywood studio FOX is rebooting Square Enix’s Hitman franchise for yet another theatrical outing. After debuting in 2007 with a lukewarm critical reaction, the first Hitman movie managed to make a modest profit, mostly courtesy of European terrorities thus a sequel is in the works.

If you’ve already cleared every mission in Hitman: Absolution on the highest difficulty setting without the aid of that silly Predator vision non-sense, then you’re in luck as Square Enix understands the potential and wide reach of the series.  Even though IO Interactive may have just wrapped up work on the fifth entry in the Hitman series, which has received a solid reception thus far, Square Enix Montreal has been tasked to handle the sixth entry in the Hitman franchise, presumably for a possible late 2013 release.

Wait, The Hitman Movie Sequel Is Still Going Forward?

I wasn’t even aware that the next film based on the popular video game series Hitman was moving forward, but apparently it is.  After we received an ok adaptation of everyone’s favorite bald assassin, Twentieth Century Fox has seemingly given the go ahead on a second film despite the low box office take of the first attempt at bringing Agent 47 to life.  We have received word in the past that a second Hitman movie was in the works, though now it seems that things are advancing ever so steadily as the latest script has been turned in, which thankfully for us has possibly revealed t
