Before his tragic, untimely death Paul Walker was set to star in a couple of upcoming films in development. Those films were the Hitman sequel Agent 47 and the adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel The Best of Me. Walker's replacements for those films have been announced.
Homeland star Rupert Friend will star in Agent 47, which is a sequel to the 2007 Hitman video game adaptation starring Timothy Olyphant. The movie is set to be directed Aleksander Bach from a script written by Skip Woods and Michael Finch.
Then there's James Marsden, who will star alongside Michelle Monaghan in The Best of Me. The story is about "two former high school sweethearts reunited after 20 years apart, when they return to their small town for the funeral of the beloved friend. Their bittersweet reunion reignites the sparks, but the forces that drove them apart back then still get in the way."
