The last time we saw Agent 47 on the big screen, it was Timothy Olyphant in the role of the bald assassin; however, now that he's busy with the victimization of redneck teeth not already victimized by meth addiction over on FX's Justified, the role passed to Paul Walker. Then that happened.

Now it's Homeland's Rupert Friend taking the role of the titular assassin.  Futhermore, according to Empire.com, Zachary Quinto (Spock, J.J. Abrams's Star Trek) will be joining him on the set of Agent 47.  The nature of his role in the film is, as yet, unknown.
