The Creator Of JOHN WICK Is Developing A HITMAN Series For Hulu

The new, as-yet-unnamed Hitman series is tentatively slated for a 2019 release on Hulu.

Despite being an amoral, emotionless killer, a considerable fanbase has built up around Agent 47 and the franchise itself.

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.

If you've never played the Hitman games, they're fairly straightforward. Kolstad has already written a pilot for the show which will stream exclusively on Hulu with backing from Fox 21, 20th Century Fox's television production company. It's hard to say what those two games could be right now but if we were to guess we'd say one is a core Hitman game similar to Hitman (2016) and maybe a new mobile game like Hitman GO. The film series was then rebooted with a 2015 film called "Agent 47: Hitman" that was somehow even worse. Neither film was received well critically.

Donald Trump, Xi Jinping spell out competing trade visions
Trump arrived in China on a diplomatic visit one day after the UCLA players were arrested. Embassy in Beijing knows the case is ongoing.

Kolstad, who wrote the first two critically-acclaimed John Wick films and the upcoming third installment, will serve as an executive producer on the new Hitman series. It's still early days for the potential series, with no actors now attached.

Television is a better fit for the Hitman franchise as it's an episodic game by its very nature.

You can't keep Agent 47 down. Yeah, they don't bring that part up all that much in the video games. Agent 47 was portrayed by Timothy Olyphant and Rupert Friend respectively. Both movies leaned too heavily on noisy action and set pieces though and lacked the suspense and tension of the games.
