Actor Rupert Friend is in talks to replace late actor Paul Walker in a sequel to the 2007 film Hitman.

Walker, who died in a fiery car crash in November in California, was planning to star in Agent 47 after production on Fast & Furious 7 wrapped, according to TheWrap.com.

Plot details are currently unknown, but Aleksander Bach is directing the movie, which is based on the highly popular videogame of the same name.

Timothy Olyphant starred as Agent 47 in the original movie.
