HItman Is Coming To Hulu, New Series Led By John Wick Creator

Agent 47 will be taking his lethal skills to the small screen, as the character is due to appear in a Hitman television series for Hulu.

It's a low-key money-earner, in other words, and maybe bringing in a dude who's proven himself talented when it comes to crafting narratives around stone-cold killers, badass conspiracies, and elaborate assassination attempts will turn out to be a flawless marriage.


The third time may end being the charm for an adaptation of the popular Hitman video game franchise.

According to Deadline, Kolstad will be writing the pilot script for Hitman, as well as executive producing alongside Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon. It's still early days for the potential series, with no actors now attached. He's the face of the Hitman franchise. Hulu, Fox, and Kolstad plan to make the show follow closely to the lore and mythology of the games, meaning that you likely won't have those very bad over the top action sequences that we saw in Agent 47. Known only as Agent 47, his latest target is a corporation that plans to unlock the secret of his past to create an army of killers even more powerful than him. Revolving around the stoic Agent 47, a bald guy with a barcode tattoo on his skull nobody seems to notice, is all about creatively bumping off jerks who really have operatic deaths coming to them in some of the world's most glamorous locales. And yet, despite an attempt with Timothy Olyphant in 2007 and another go a few years back in 2015, it didn't click with audiences. Both movies leaned too heavily on noisy action and set pieces though and lacked the suspense and tension of the games.
