French director Xavier Gens talked to Allocine recently about his plans for the film adaptation of Eidoe video game series “Hitman”.
First up will be dark and violent along “Robocop” lines rather than “a fun popcorn movie like The Transporter”.
Emphasis will be placed on the loneliness of the hero and his quest for identity, along with a violent and dark narrative.
The atmosphere of the game will be closely followed. Score will be orchestral and operatic in nature and photography inspired largely by Robert Richardson’s work for Scorcese’s “Casino”.
