Zachary Quinto Joins ‘Hitman’ Reboot ‘Agent 47’

Zachary Quinto has signed on for a supporting role in Fox International's Agent 47 reboot. The news comes just weeks after Rupert Friend signed on to play the title character, replacing the late Paul Walker.

The project was initially scheduled to start production this February, but that was before Paul Walker tragically died this past November in a car crash. The reboot is based on the Square Enix video game franchise, which follows a mysterious assassin known only as Agent 47, who has a barcode tattooed to the back of his head and works for a shadowy organization. The video game series, which has sold more than 20 million units since its launch, was adapted into the 2007 movie Hitman starring Timothy Olyphant, which earned just under $100 million worldwide, with $60.2 million coming from international markets. No story details have been released yet.
