Hitman to Become Hulu TV Series

Hitman Agent 47 John Wick

Hitman TV Series Coming to Hulu from 'John Wick' Creator

The Hitman show will be executive produced by Derek Kolstad, the creator of John Wick, one of the most beloved action movies ever.

Another Hitman adaptation is in the works, but this time it's coming to television instead of the big screen.

The project will be a collaboration with Fox 21 and there are hopes that Hitman will become a flagship series for Hulu. Kolstad wrote both John Wick and John Wick Chapter 3, and is attached as the writer for the third entry in the series as well.

The first Hitman video game launched in 2000 with Hitman: Codename 47, and there have been eight more installments since then, selling more than 25 million copies combined.

Not only is Kolstad a great pick since John Wick is like Agent 47 if he went off the rails but the seeds planted in the first John Wick helped establish a much larger world, something absolutely essential in something Hitman related.

The original Boaty McBoatface was even renamed the Sir David Attenborough after officials said the public's choice was unsuitable. Ferry McFerryface finished fifth.

Fox has attempted to bring this character to life before in two feature films, with 2007's Hitman starring Timothy Olyphant and 2015's Hitman: Agent 47 starring Rupert Friend.

Kolstad's skill for writing assassins is, of course, pretty firmly established at this point though - hopefully he'll do a better job.

According to a report by Deadline Hollywood, the Hitman franchise is now heading to Hulu.

If you've never played the Hitman games, they're fairly straightforward.
