The Fast & Furious franchise suffered an enormous loss when Paul Walker tragically passed, but the hardworking actor had other movies in the pipeline as well.
Producers were left scrambling to replace the irreplaceable star. After all, who could bring the charm, sincerity, and physical presence that came so easily to Paul?
Well, in the case of Agent 47, a reboot of the Hitman video game adaptation, Fox is in talks with up-and-comer Rupert Friend.
Rupert's good looks and acting chops have made the Brit a standout on Homeland, but this will be his first action lead.
But Paul didn't just do action. He was also a romantic, planning to bring the next tearjerking Nicholas Sparks love story, The Best Of Me, to the big screen.
Relativity has reportedly offered that role to hunky Anchorman 2 star James Marsden, to star opposite Michelle Monaghan.
Obvi no one can ever replace Paul in our hearts, but we're glad to see two great actors helping to relaunch such promising projects.
