Timothy Olyphant Addresses Hitman Rumors

Did Fox fire Xavier Gens? CHUD says yes.

by | November 6, 2007 | Comments

About a month ago, we discussed a rumor regarding 20th Century Fox’s supposed sacking of Hitman director Xavier Gens — and the studio’s rumored desire for a PG-13 film. Fox later refuted the rumor…but doth the studio protest too much?

CHUD certainly thinks so. In a report posted today, the site publishes quotes from the film’s star, Timothy Olyphant, that would seem to indicate Gens was fired after all. According to CHUD‘s Russ Fischer, Olyphant “confirmed” Gens’ dismissal, although the quotes included in the article don’t explicitly say so. In fact, when asked about the Hitman reshoots, Olyphant seems to have had tongue planted firmly in cheek:

“I saw [Gens] when I was there [doing the reshoots] but he did not direct the reshoots. I heard the talk on that, that he was fired. I kept saying I was trying to get that guy fired for months. They finally fired him? I was saying that forever. He doesn’t speak English, didn’t anybody see that?”

Olyphant goes on to assure readers that Hitman remains “very violent,” saying that if the rumors of heavy, PG-13-style editing were true, “we’d have a 45-minute film.” To read more of his remarks, click on the link below!
