Zachary Quinto will be starting work soon on Agent 47, the sequel to 2007’s Hitman.
Hitman was based on the popular video game which chronicles the adventures of assassin-for-hire Agent 47.
Quinto will be joining Rupert Friend in the production. Friend will be taking on the role of Agent 47, replacing Paul Walker, who died in a car crash last November.
Agent 47 will begin shooting in March. It will be directed by Aleksander Bach, from a script written by Skip Woods and Michael Finch.
It is not yet known what role Quinto will have in the movie.
