IESB has confirmed that 20th Century Fox has hired writer Kyle Ward to pen the script for the sequel to Hitman! The original Hitman movie was a bona fide hit released in 2007 with an estimated gross of 100 million dollars in worldwide box office receipts not including DVD sales and television broadcast rights.
Now, I guess I don’t understand the movie business. Because it seems to me, if you open a pizza place, and everyone on the block comes to the grand opening and buys a slice, but then they spend the next week pissing out their ass and talking about how much your pizza sucks, your receipts may not be the best indicator of the public’s appetite for more of your pizza. Or as a Fox Exec might say, “Dude! Everyone’s talking about your pizza!”
