Next Hitman movie, game overlap

We know a new Hitman game is coming. We know a new Hitman movie is coming. And now we learn there will be a bit of one in the other. Variety writes that the movie, where we see the very bald Agent 47 working himself up from a low point of his assassination career, will have a bit of the game in it. To what extent the two overlap is unknown, all we know for now is that Hitman 2 the movie will include story elements from Hitman 5 the game.

The Variety piece also tells us the game will be out in “late 2010,” so there’s still quite a bit of waiting to do before the trusty piano wire becomes useful again.
