    Sean Bean has a reputation for dying in films and series he's in, and IO Interactive decided to capitalize on it. The actor will appear as Hitman 2's first Elusive Target.

    Check it out in the trailer here.

    Sean Bean stars as Mark Faba in HITMAN 2’s first Elusive Target mission, The Undying. Releasing November 20th, you only have 10 days to take down Faba.

    Is there a film/series he lived!?
    Time to search Youtube for a video of his deaths.

    haha I love hitman, one of the best surprise games I've played in a while. Never really got into the older hitman games, decided to jump on the free mission offers on steam and was blown away by the game so I ended up buying and beating it lol. I really love the fact that you can take every missions/level as serious or silly as you'd like.

    Wanna kill him in a suit from the shadows like the unseen reaper of death you are? Go for it!! Wanna blow his ass up with a rubber ducky while wearing a clown costume? Suit up bobo this is gonna be fun :D

    Considering the amount of times Steve Buscemi has died in movies I'm surprised he wasn't chosen to be a target/victim.

    Michael Jackson got his own game ;P I think if that ever happens to a A-list celebrity it would go over big again. 14:47 best part of the video btw

    Nope, gotta die in them all or you're not worth the hit.
    Wonder if Sean Bean would be willing to play as an actor cursed with immortality, always cast to play roles where he die!?

    It's not out of the question. Sean Bean is just the first of more exclusive targets to come.

    IO Interactive should just work their way down this list.

    He does really convincing death scenes. Why go against what works?

    National Treasure

    The Frankenstein Chronicles is iffy. I thought about mentioning it but you need to watch it to understand. I highly recommend watching it. It's slow and I found the accents quite thick at times but it's a very interesting show.

    I thought he just got arrested in National Treasure, not killed.

    I haven't watched the other movies/shows in the list and based on the post quoted he was mentioning ones he lived. That's why I added National Treasure.

    I'm sick and tired of games being remade, and then remastered, and then reset, then remade again, and called the same thing.

    Hitman 2 was in 2002, then WTF is this called hitman 2 again?
