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

15 November, 2017, 00:52 | Author: Devin Moran

Deadline has reported that Fox 21 and Hulu have teamed up for a television show based on Agent 47 in a new series from John Wick creator, Derek Kolstad.

The latest game, which was released episodically throughout 2016, was a critical success and sold over 7 million copies.


How an emotionless, nearly personality-free, hitman, who stars in very slow-paced stealth adventures, became one of the most frequently filmed video game characters we don't know.

Hulu wants to hire Agent 47 for a hit ... He wrote the first movie and scripted John Wick: Chapter 3, due in theaters May 17, 2019. Since he already knows how to write characters who happen to assassinate others well, it makes sense that this pilot will be much more in-tune with fans of both the last game and the series as a whole. The whole appeal of the Hitman games is each level is a wicked little puzzle box where the prize is figuring out how to pull off the flawless murder, and that's been hard to translate to the movies. The first was an eponymous 2007 movie directed by Xavier Gens. It has players taking on the role of Agent 47 as he figures out ways to use the environment and an assortment of tools and weapons to eliminate his targets. The games, however, tell a different tale. We say that because, believe it or not, our favorite bald contract killer is slated to carry out his next mission via a new Hitman series set to debut on a popular streaming service.
