Hulu plans to make a Hitman television series with 'John Wick' creator

Hulu plans to make a Hitman television series with 'John Wick' creator

There aren't many details on the planned series, though Deadline reports that Hitman will "hew closely to the mythology of the perennially popular video game".

Even through publisher turnover, Agent 47 just keeps finding ways to continue doing his job.

The two Hitman movies served as passable licensed game adaptations, with mediocre to average scores. No, but John Wick is a fantastic series, with the third part in the trilogy due out in 2019. Hulu has not announced a release date or who will play the bald assassin.

Fox 21 and Hulu are partnering for a new television series based on IO Interactive's Hitman video game series. According to Deadline, Kolstad's on board to write the pilot and executive produce the series. There are six entries in the series, with the newest game having released in 2016. As of right now though, an actor has yet to be chosen for the role of Agent 47.

There have been two attempts at adapting Hitman for screen in the last decade, and neither fared well. In 2007, Leon: The Professional director Luc Besson produced Hitman starring Justified'sTimothy Olyphant as Agent 47. The pilot is being written by Derek Kolstad. The project will be overseen at Fox 21 by Bert Salke, Jane Francis, Gloria Fan and Kira Innes, and at Hulu by Jordan Helman.

If you've played any of IO Interactive's Hitman games, you know how episodic the setup is: Agent 47 and his bald, bar-coded head travel to locations both exotic and mundane - sometimes in creative disguise - and carry out murder assignments that involve espionage at the highest global levels.
