Hitman: Agent 47: EW preview

Rupert Friend in Hitman: Agent 47 (Reiner Bajo)

STARRING Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware
DIRECTED BY Aleksander Bach
NOT YET RATED
RELEASE DATE August 28

Agent 47 (Rupert Friend) is a genetically engineered hitman tasked with killing Katia (Hannah Ware), the daughter of the head of a megacorporation. Why? Because the company is building an army of assassins even deadlier than he is. With help from a protector (Zachary Quinto), Katia seeks out her dad to resolve some matters of her own. “She’s the lost girl looking for where she belongs,” says Aleksander Bach, who’s making his directorial debut with this adaptation of the Hitman videogame. Katia and 47 team up, and he learns he may be more than just the sum of his bar code. “He’s not prepared for the human emotion,” Bach says. “When you’re a cold assassin, how much humanity is still there?”
