Scottish actor Dougray Scott has signed on to play opposite Timothy Olyphant in "Hitman."

The "Hitman" finally has found its tough opponent. The flick's producer Luc Besson has revealed to IGN Movies that "Mission: Impossible II" star Dougray Scott has been picked up to play the antagonist who pursues the titular role, known as Agent 47, throughout the film.

Based on Eidos' popular video game of the same title, the movie centers on an assassin known as Agent 47 who is hired by a group dubbed "The Agency" to kill targets for cash. "Deadwood" star Timothy Olyphant has been cast to play the character under the direction of Xavier Gens who is set to helm from a script by Skip Woods.

Filming is due to start at the end of this month in Prague for an October 12, 2007 release with Besson producing via his Europa Corp alongside Chuck Gordon and Adrian Askarieh for the 20th Century Fox. Daniel Alter will co-produce while Yann Cuinet and Marie Rolindes will serve as the first and second assistant director, respectively.
