Zachary Quinto (“Star Trek,” “American Horror Story”) will join Rupert Friend in the “Hitman” franchise reboot “Agent 47” at Fox International.
“Homeland” star Friend takes on the title role, replacing the late Paul Walker in the lead, with filming to begin in March.
Quinto will jump onto the Aleksander Bach-directed project straight from his stage commitments on “The Glass Menagerie”.
It’s not specified what role he will play in the film. The movie will be based on the popular video game series.
