'Hitman' Goes To Hulu Courtesy Of A 'John Wick' Mastermind

IO Interactive

You play as a genetically-engineered assassin, Agent 47, and you're tasked with finding a creative solution to taking out your target.

A pilot script for the new series is already underway from writer Derek Kolstad, who, as creator of the John Wick universe, definitely knows a thing or two about ambitious ways to pull off a good assassination. Deadline reports a Hitman series is being developed for Hulu.

Hulu and Fox 21 reportedly want Hitman to become a flagship TV series, and the plan is to adhere closely to the video game source material. However, the Hitman video games still maintain a successful following and the 2016 current-gen reboot game sold 7 million units and earned generally positive reviews, with two more games set for development; something that may justify this latest, medium-moved, live-action adaptation. Neither film was received well critically.

Dead and Kid Survives in Crash on I-94 Near Detroit
Authorities are investigating after four people were killed in a crash on I-94 near Detroit early Monday morning. Speed, wet weather, and alcohol may have contributed to the crash, although the investigation is still ongoing.

Other than Kolstad in the producer and writing role, the project is overseen by Fox 21 head Bert Salke himself. It's still early days for the potential series, with no actors now attached.

Now, you can say all you want about his silver screen outings - Hitman and Hitman: Agent 47 - but I enjoyed them both to varying degrees. Yeah, they don't bring that part up all that much in the video games. While Olyphant is a fine actor, he felt completely miscast in the 2007 Hitman movie, and the film made the mistake of giving the character quippy one-liners and a love interest. Maybe the third time's the charm. He's the face of the Hitman franchise.

Hulu's Hitman doesn't now have an airdate but we'll keep you updated as more information arrives.
