Action star and popular "Pacifier" Vin Diesel will star in Fox’s big-screen adaptation of the Eidos Interactive video game "Hitman," says Variety. No word yet on who’ll be writing and/or directing the new video game flick, but Fox is really enjoying the video-game-movie renaissance: they recently signed a deal to help bring a "Halo" movie to the big screen, as well.

The story of "Hitman" focuses on an "international assassin known as Agent 47 who works for a mysterious org dubbed the Agency." The first three entries in the "Hitman" game series have sold over 10 million units worldwide, and a fourth chapter, entitled "Hitman: Blood Money," is scheduled for release later this year.
