The Hitman trailer, on the other hand, is quite the quiet and classy affair ... which somehow makes the flick seem just a little more bad-ass. Like I said, I've never played the video game, but I've been a fan of the Olyphant for quite some time (Deadwood rocks!) and I'm psyched to see him land a big-time action hero gig like this one. The director on Hitman is first-timer Frenchman Xavier Gens; his supporting cast includes Olga Kurylenko, Ulrich Thomsen and Dougray Scott. October 12 is when Fox plans to unleash the assassin, and I gotta say ... I'm all of a sudden pretty damn intrigued by this one.
Oh, I never mentioned the plot: It's about a bald hitman who kills a whole lot of bad people. Stylishly.
