'Hitman' TV Series Coming to Hulu from 'John Wick' Screenwriter
Nov 14 2017 by Marjorie Miles
You play as a genetically-engineered assassin, Agent 47, and you're tasked with finding a creative solution to taking out your target. Hulu will work in conjunction with 21st Century Fox on a pilot script that will eventually transform Hitman into what the online network hopes will become "a flagship series". The first time was the universally-panned 2007 effort called "Hitman".
Deadline reports Hulu has teamed with Fox 21 and Kolstad to develop a show that will be based on IO Interactive's Hitman video game series.
In a gaming career that's spanned console generations, Agent 47's already killed more people than anyone can reasonably count - and now the Hitman star is preparing to pop up on your TV to show you what assassination-for-hire looks like when no one's holding the controller. Despite both films turning a profit they both failed to launch sequels and received weak reviews. Kolstad will produce alongside Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon.

Both operations focused on the capacity to quickly unite forces from three strike force groups because of national circumstances. However, Pyongyangs state news agency accused the USA and South Korea of attempting to escalate tensions in the region.
Are you guys interested in a series based on the video game franchise Hitman? IO Interactive has two more games in development. As of right now though, an actor has yet to be chosen for the role of Agent 47. Hopefully, third time will be the charm for this franchise when it comes to live-action, as Agent 47 is a great character and the concept has a lot of potential if executed properly. 2007's Hitman, starring a weirdly cast Timothy Olyphant, was goofy fun but not particularly in keeping with what the series excelled at.
Hulu's Hitman doesn't now have an airdate but we'll keep you updated as more information arrives.
