It seems we might be seeing more of Agent 47 in the theaters in the near future. According to, 20th Century Fox has hired screenwriter Kyle Ward to write a sequel to the 2007 action film, Hitman.

It was said that the first film's producers, Adrian Askarieh, Daniel Alter and Chuck Gordon, will return, but there has been no word as of yet if stars Timothy Olyphant and Olga Kurylenko will return to the franchise.

Ward has written the scripts for upcoming films such as Kane & Lynch, which will star Bruce Willis and also the Platinum Dunes film Fiasco Heights.

We'll certainly keep you posted on any other Hitman sequel developments as soon as we have more information.
