Girls‘ latest guest casting is sure to take the HBO comedy in an unexpected direction.
Actor/writer/director/producer Spike Jonze will appear in a Season 4 episode, TVLine has learned exclusively, playing a character named Marcos.
In addition to his extensive film work, both on and off-camera, Jonze’s TV credits include a recurring role on IFC’s The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.
I am pretty sure that 2007’s Hitman is the first movie to cause controversy by maybe having visible labia on its poster. That is about the only superlative I can hand to that movie, however. Even Timothy Olyphant, who made even Catch and Release watchable, couldn’t save that one. Fortunately, those who have seen the first trailer for Hitman: Agent 47 — sure to be online any day now — say that it is a definite improvement. The reboot stars Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto, and Hannah Ware, and it looks like a B movie worth watching. 20th Century Fox has released a few images from the film to pique your interest before the trailer comes out. Friend plays the titular Hitman, Quinto is the chief antagonist, and Ware is a woman who is caught between them somehow. Rumor has it she is a human MacGuffin.

Over the weekend we got our first look at the upcoming Hitman reboot Agent 47 with a banner and first images, and now Fox has released a few more stills from the film, which we have here…
Hitman: Agent 47 is set for release on February 27th 2015 in North America and in the UK, with Aleksander Bach directing a cast that includes Rupert Friend (Homeland) starring as Agent 47 alongside Zachary Quinto (Star Trek Into Darkness), Hannah Ware (Boss), Thomas Kretschmann (Dracula), Dan Bakkedahl (Legit), Emilio Rivera (Sons of Anarchy), Rolf Kanies (The Countess), Ciaran Hinds (Game of Thrones) and Jeffy Hoffman (Shahada).

Comic-Con came and went, and one of the less buzzy films highlighted there was 20th Century Fox’s upcoming Hitman: Agent 47, which finds Rupert Friend, of Showtime’s Homeland, stepping into the title role of a nameless assassin. The trailer screened in San Diego hasn’t yet found its way online, though we did see two action-packed images featuring Friend and co-star Hannah Ware (Shame) hit the web a few days back.
Now, as we wait for the trailer release, some more shots from Hitman: Agent 47 have arrived, revealing the appearance of Zachary Quinto (Star Trek Into Darkness), who plays the bad guy of the film. We don’t know too much about the plot of this video game adaptation, though it’s a safe bet that Agent 47 and Quinto’s baddie trade blows and bullets over Ware’s mysterious Katia van Dees.

20th Century Fox has released four new pictures from the upcoming video game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47, set for release next February 27, 2015. The film finds Rupert Friend in the title role as a genetically-engineered assassin created from the recombinant DNA of five of the world's most dangerous criminals. The new pics also feature co-stars Zachary Quinto and Hannah Ware, not pictured, however are Thomas Kretschmann and Ciaran Hinds. Aleksander Bach is making his feature directorial debut with the film and I'm a little wary considering the screenplay comes from A Good Day To Die Hard duo Skip Woods and Mike Finch. We'll see how this one turns out in the early 2015 dumping grounds. Check out three more pics below and the two earlier pics that were released right here. I expect we'll have a trailer soon enough. »

A genetically-engineered assassin created from the recombinant DNA of five of the world's most dangerous criminals. The fact that the DNA came from multiple ethnicities allows 47 to blend in to a certain degree in most places in the world, or at least not look immediately suspicious and out-of-place. His name comes from the last two digits of a bar code on the back of his head – 640509-040147. He is a tall, bald, blue-eyed, no-nonsense individual and usually wears a suit with black leather gloves and a red tie and is known to disguise himself. Engineered from conception to be the perfect killer, 47's strength, speed, »

Hitman: Agent 47 made a respectable-sized splash at the San Diego Comic-Con last week, and it shouldn’t be too long before the Agent 47 trailer shown to the Hall H crowd (during the 20th Century Fox panel at the ‘Con) makes it way online. In the meantime, we can offer a gallery of images from the video game movie reboot – one that highlights the film’s principal players, in the forms of Rupert Friend (Homeland), Zachary Quinto (Star Trek), and Hannah Ware (Betrayal).
In the film, Friend plays Agent 47 – an “elite and genetically engineered assassin,” who gets his name from the last two digits in a barcode tattooed on the back ...

Shortly before Aleksander Bach’s Hitman: Agent 47 world premiered its trailer in Hall H at Comic-Con (our recap of the trailer and panel is here), I sat down with Hannah Ware for an exclusive video interview. Based on the popular video game franchise, Hitman: Agent 47 tells the story of an elite, genetically engineered assassin (Rupert Friend), known only by the last two digits of a barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. His latest target is a young woman, but the mission brings startling revelations about both of their pasts. The film also stars Zachary Quinto. During the interview Hannah Ware talked about preparing for Comic-Con, what people should know about the movie, shooting on location in Berlin and Singapore, working with Rupert Friend and Zachary Quinto, the action scenes, what she collects, her excitement for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and more. Hit the jump to watch. »

While many may have had issues with the character, reaction to Benedict Cumberbatch's performance in the role was much more positive. Cumberbatch, appearing at Comic Con over the past few days, tells MTV he thinks the door is open for him to return as Khan in potential future films:
"Maybe [Khan could come back]. He is in a freezer…we have all defrosted chicken in our day… Set the toaster to defrost and he will come out all bad and angry again. I don't know. It depends on what direction they are going to take. There is definitely room for him to come back in some shape or form."
Actor Zachary Quinto also told the outlet he doesn't think Cumberbatch will be a part of the next film, »

Based on the popular video game franchise, Hitman: Agent 47 tells the story of an elite, genetically engineered assassin (Rupert Friend), known only by the last two digits of a barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. His latest target is a young woman, but the mission brings startling revelations about both of their pasts. While at Comic-Con for a presentation in Hall H, Zachary Quinto spoke to press at a conference, in which he talked about how tough it was to be so close to production when Paul Walker (who was originally cast to play the title role) tragically passed away, that this is a really large-scale, high-stakes action film that’s rooted in character relationships, how none of the characters are what they seem, shooting in both Berlin and Singapore, how he prepared for this role, the most challenging stunt sequence, and how this compares to the 2007 movie. »

The first trailer for Hitman: Agent 47 was unloaded at Comic-Con.
Friend wasn't present to show off the trailer because he's shooting the next season of "Homeland" in South Africa, but hisAgent 47 co-stars Hannah Ware and Zachary Quinto were on hand for the San Diego unveiling.
"We saw bits and pieces in Berlin and Singapore when we were shooting it, but to actually see it put together like that is epic," Quinto said of the trailer.
The fast-paced preview began with the follicly challenged Agent 47 escaping from handcuffs in an interrogation room. Other scenes featured a car chase sequence filled with rope darts and a scantily clad Ware dipping into a rooftop pool. »

One of the more anticipated movies 20th Century Fox brought to Hall H for Comic-Con was Hitman: Agent 47, which stars Rupert Friend in the title role. While the actor wasn't there himself, the studio did tease a few scenes from the action-packed thriller, which received a warm reception from the crowd. On hand for interviews were Zachary Quinto, who plays a mysterious and deadly bad guy named Johnny Smith, and Hannah Ware who plays leading lady Katia. Here they are, directly from the convention center floor.
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.
In spite of a solid (albeit interactive) source material and large following of video game players, Xavier Gen’s 2007 Hitman movie starring Timothy Olyphant was poorly received by critics and fans alike. With a $30 million budget, the movie was still able to turn a profit – snagging $99 million in global box office revenue. Yet, word of mouth was mostly underwhelming and a sequel, Hitman 2, languished in development hell for years – until 20th Century Fox decided to reboot the franchise entirely with Paul Walker in the lead role. Following Walker’s untimely death, Rupert Friend (Homeland) was cast to take over the role of Agent 47.
With Friend on board, ...

20th Century Fox held its big Comic-Con 2014 panel yesterday in Hall H, bringing some hugely anticipated projects along with it. And today, we get the latest photos from two of these movies, the video game reboot Hitman: Agent 47 and the Ya novel adaptation The Maze Runner.

Once again, we have the fantastic, the indomitable, the flying-fingered Jeri Jacqui! on the transcripts!
Some good stuff from yesterday. Since I was on the Maze Runner set (report here), I've read the book and have been itching to see what Wes Ball made of it. They showed it to some fans earlier in the week and it got some good twitter buzz.
Let's check out what Fox offered yesterday at Sdcc!
Wes Ball (director)
James Dashner (author)
Will Poulter - Gally
Kaya Scodelario - Teresa
Dylan O’Brien - Thomas
Ralph Garman (Mod): Please welcome director Wes Ball, author James Dashner, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario and Dylan O’Brien. Dylan, as Thomas, an actor tends to want to use his environment etc. and you have none of those advantages with this character.
Dylan: Yes, there isn’t that much to go off of. Taking it in »
Fox brought the new Hitman movie, Hitman: Agent 47, to Comic Con today via an understated panel that featured actors Zachary Quinto and Hannah Ware. Rupert Friend, who plays the title character, an assassin introduced in the video game series from Eidos and Square Enix, was unable to attend Comic Con thanks to the shooting […]

Some of the first images of Hitman Agent 47 have turned up at Comic-Con. The movie reboots the original 2007 video game adaptation and started shooting in March of this year, in Berlin. Starring Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware and Ciaran Hinds, the plot follows a young woman named Katia van Dees, who teams up with Agent 47 in order to find her father and her true ancestry. They discover that Katia is a genetically engineered assassin just like 47. Together, they fight the Syndicate to find Katia's father. While it’s unfair to shit can this already, Friend looks completely miscast here (Paul Walker was originally going to play Agent 47), looking more like an extra in a Guy Ritchie film than a well known video game character. Quinto on the other hand, looks decent enough. I don’t think this is going to be an top notch videogame adaptation, as »

Anne Marie cowering before GodzillaHello again! Anne Marie here, beaming to your computer screens direct from San Diego Comic Con. Though I thought it wasn't possible, it seems as though the convention got bigger and more crowded. So I learned my lesson and stayed far from the exhibition hall today. Instead, I wandered the Gaslamp District, saw some panels, and did some interviews. (More on those later.) But most of all, I waited in line. In a fun way!
Here are 6 new things I that learned today.
1) Marvel TV won't tell us anything about its Netflix shows. This despite the fact that Daredevil is already filming. Either they're saving that for the Marvel panel tomorrow afternoon (which seems unlikely), or Netflix hasn't yet gotten Sdcc-friendly. Netflix has been absent from Comic Con this year, which was suddenly more conspicuous when fully five of Marvel's new shows were absent from the discussion: Luke Cage, »

The video game franchise Hitman is getting a reboot of sorts, and the first footage from Hitman: Agent 47 was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this Friday. Though star Rupert Friend was unable to attend due to the fact that he’s shooting Homeland in South Africa at the moment, but co-stars Zachary Quinto (who played John Smith) and Hannah Ware (who plays Katia) took the Hall H stage to reveal the first footage and discuss delving into the action genre. Hit the jump to read my full Hitman: Agent 47 Comic-Con panel recap. Panel Highlights Quinto said the scale, scope, and style of the film is dynamic, but the relationships are integral. The story is defined through Agent 47’s relationship with John Smith and Ware. On making her first foray into the action genre, Ware said the technical aspect was far different from what she was used to. »
