Hitman: Agent 47 has reloaded, and he's coming back for more. However, it looks like the video game world's boldest (and baldest) assassin will have a change of face. is out, and Fast & Furious 6's is in.

Hitman first got its big-screen tryout in 2007, with at the head of the project. It actually turned out to be one of the better video game adaptations, but don't get me wrong, it still wasn't a good movie. It just wasn't as bad as many of the others. It certainly made more money than the average, racking in $100 million worldwide.

This time around, Aleksander Bach will be behind the camera. Haven't heard of him? Well, that's not surprising. He's recently made the jump from directing commercials to movies. This will be his first big screen, feature-length effort. He will be joined by writer Skip Woods, who also penned the original Hitman movie. I'm still not sure if this is a good thing or not.

Filming is expected to commence soon in Berlin and Singapore, but we don't know much past that, as the actual plot is currently being kept firmly under wraps. If the games and 2007 movie are anything to go by though, I'm sure we can expect to see lots of gun and piano wire action when it releases.
