Deadline reports that Walker is the choice to play Agent 47 and will do so once he finishes his global press tour for Fast and Furious 6 The film will shoot in Berlin and Singapore this summer and will feature Walker with the iconic shaved head and barcode.  Production begins this June.  The hopes are that Agent 47 will prove successful in both domestic and global box offices and that Walker will help reboot become a franchise-starter.
