I never saw the original nor cared to, but trading out the star of Justified for some guy we never heard of who isn’t even especially physically imposing doesn’t seem like the right move.
Nor does having his “badass cool guy” line in the trailer be a direct steal from Watchmen. Agent 47’s a comic-book nerd now, I guess.
Some pretty pictures here, though. I don’t think they’ll save what already seems like a terrible script, but I can’t say the slow-mo bullet stuff isn’t fun.
