Hitman could be gaining a sequel, if the rumours are right, and the writer has been hired already.
While many might think that there doesn't deserve to be a second Hitman (Filmstalker review) film, I disagree. Although there were a number of problems with the first film it was a solid adaptation of the character to film, and Timothy Olyphant was good as the main character.
Kyle Ward is the man who has been hired to write the sequel, and having just delivered a script for the video game adaptation of Kane & Lynch which gained Bruce Willisin one of the leads, you'd be forgiven for thinking he would be perfect to ramp up the action and the scope of the second film.
I'd be very excited to see a sequel, because the first film was pretty good at adapting the video game to the big screen. While many just attack video game adaptations just because they do come from video games, I don't. I prefer to judge each adaptation on the depth of the original story and the potential, whether it comes from a book, game, real life, whatever.
Just because a film is adapted from a video game does not make it bad, and people seem to forget how well and how entertaining some of these films have been. There's nothing to say that a Hitman sequel couldn't be better than the first and turn out to be a damn good film. I'm hoping anyway.
