Finally, the uncertainty surrounding the involvement of Timothy Olyphant in "Hitman" is over. Variety has firmly confirmed that the "Deadwood" star is positive to play the title character in the Luc Besson-produced project for the 20th Century Fox.

Along with Olyphant's inclusion, it is also revealed that newcomer Xavier Ganz will carry out the helming duties from Skip Woods' script and that filming is slated to begin by March this year in Europe. Apart from Besson, Chuck Gordon and Adrian Askarieh are also producing while Daniel Alter is set to co-produce.
