The Hitman video game franchise kicked off in 2000 with the release of Hitman: Codename 47, and while the game series has enjoyed success over the subsequent five other installments, Hollywood has also taken a stab at transporting the character over to the silver screen.  The Timothy Olyphant-fronted 2007 feature film iteration was a modest success, but now Hitman is getting rebooted in the form of director Aleksander Bach’s upcoming actioner Hitman: Agent 47.  This time around, Homeland actor Rupert Friend assumes the role of the titular bald assassin, and after the jump you can check out a new side-by-side Hitman: Agent 47 image that compares Friend’s physical transformation with the in-game character.  I’m not sure how important physical likeness is to the overall quality of the film, but if you’re keen on seeing how Friend stacks up to the CG-created Hitman, feel free to take a look.

Here’s the official synopsis for Hitman: Agent 47:

Based on the top-selling, award-winning videogame franchise, “Hitman: Agent 47” is an all-new motion picture about an elite and genetically engineered assassin, known only by the last two digits – 47 – of a barcode tattooed on the back of his neck.
