Vin Diesel Not Assassinated On "Hitman" Set

by at . Comments

A source close to Vin Diesel says that contrary to Internet reports, the actor was not dropped from the upcoming movie Hitman -- in fact, he opted out long ago.

Rumors circulated yesterday that actor Timothy Olyphant had taken Vin's place after he was dumped from the film. While it's true that Olyphant will star in the film (based on a popular videogame), Diesel was off the project long before Olyphant got the part.

Seriously. No one fires Vin Diesel. He would beat their asses if they tried. And Vin might not even know who Timothy Olyphant is. We sure as hell don't.

According to TMZ, Vin jetted off to Prague today to star in the big budget, Mathieu Kassovitz directed FOX feature, Babylon A.D., based on the best-selling French novel Babylon Babies. The film is set to be a major 2007 holiday release for the studio.

Diesel was last seen in Find Me Guilty, for which he received rave reviews, and also starred in the mega-hit, The Pacifier, which grossed over $200 million worldwide.

You know who needs a pacifier? 50 Cent. Why don't you back off Oprah, you thug! That fool is just a whiny, ungrateful jackass. What!?! Step off.
