Homeland's Rupert Friend Replacing Paul Walker in Hitman
It looks like Fox International may have found its replacement for Paul Walker in the upcoming Hitman film reboot. The Wrap reports that "multiple individuals familiar with the Fox International Productions project" have told it that Homeland star Rupert Friend is in talks to take on the role of Agent 47.

While Homeland's second and third series have attracted mixed reviews, Friend's portrayal of Peter Quinn has received near-unanimous praise.

The late Paul Walker was set to take on the role until his recent death during the filming of Fast and Furious 7.

A new Hitman game is in the works at IO Interactive, though the studio recently laid off half its staff to focus purely on the stealth franchise.
