"Swordfish" Scribe to Tackle Diesel's "Hitman"

by | October 24, 2005 | Comments

Skip Woods, writer and co-producer of the Hugh Jackman action flick "Swordfish," has been tapped by Fox to helm their adaptation of the video game "Hitman," starring Vin Diesel. At least that’s what Variety tells us.

"Studio picked up the Eidos vidgame franchise in June from producers Chuck Gordon and Adrian Askarieh. Diesel will exec produce and Daniel Alter will serve in a producing capacity.

The story centers on an international assassin, known as Agent 47, who works for a mysterious org dubbed the Agency.

Woods, who is getting mid-six figures for the adaptation, wrote and directed indie pic "Thursday" and worked on remake "Logan’s Run" at Warner Bros.

Fox is looking at "Hitman" as a potential franchise. Studio and Universal also are developing Microsoft’s megahit vidgame "Halo" and recently brought on Peter Jackson to exec produce."
