Uh! Oh! They finally released a trailer for the Hitman movie:
The good news is, that Vin Diesel is not in it. Not that I have anything against the fucking Riddick. Say what you want, but the dude is ok in my book. I mean, he used to play D&D. :mrgreen: But, unfortunately he is definitely not 47! Not by a long shot. I never saw him as a good fit – there would be just to much brutal ass kicking if he was in it, and that’s just not Hitman style at all.
But, who the fuck is Timothy Olyphant. How the hell did he get that role? I fucking hate Holywood. Instead of offering the role to the voice of 47 himself – David Bateson they first digg out fucking Tripple X, and then when that deal goes south they fall back on some girly looking cowboy from a HBO show. Seriously, look at the preview – Timmy the Elephant kinda looks like he should be in a boy band, and not in a contract killing business.
Bateson on the other hand was supposedly the model for 47 – the character was designed based on him. The bold head, the voice – Bateson is 47. And if you can’t have him, then at least get Jason Satham. After all the original Transporter movie was nothing more than a blatant Hitman ripoff. Satham has the look – and the voice is close enough.
Sigh… I’m still gonna watch it when it comes out. I love the Hitman games so I will probably be horribly disappointed by the movie. But I will watch it, and rant about it nevertheless.
