Timothy Olyphant points out that he has not signed on yet to star in "Hitman."

Contrasting with reports informing him to have joined the "Hitman" cast, "Deadwood" star Timothy Olyphant surprisingly revealed during a promotion on romantic drama "Catch and Release" that tidbits on his involvement in the project have been remarkably exaggerated though he did admit that he has had talks about playing the title role.

"I don't think I've ever been officially attached to it, contrary to the Internet," the actor remarked. "It sounds fun. It sounds pretty cool. I've seen the pictures. I've never played the game but it looks cool. Lord knows what I'd look like when this hair comes off. It's a major concern."

A production of the 20th Century Fox, "Hitman" is based on Eidos' popular video game of the same title which focuses on an assassin known as Agent 47 who is hired by a group dubbed "The Agency" to kill targets for cash. Skip Woods is writing the screenplay with Luc Besson, Chuck Gordon, Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter all seating as producers.
