Hitman 2 movie director picked by studio

Benmayor to make debut on Hollywood spin-off sequel

20th Century Fox is looking for Daniel Benmayor to direct Hitman 2, the silver screen spin-off of the popular contract killing video game franchise.

Benmayor recently made his feature debut with a Spanish film called 'Paintball' and built his reputation prior to that directing adverts for Renault, Mercedes, Heineken, Samsung and Sony PlayStation.

The first Hitman film started gaining ground back in 2007 and although getting a thorough watering down for the big screen, ended up doing better than expected grossing 100 million dollars worldwide.

Back in the land of video games, Hitman 5 is scheduled for release at the end of 2010.
