Hitman TV show coming to Hulu; Being written by John Wick creator

14 November 2017, 04:16 | Jodi Jackson

As reported by Deadline, a pilot script is now in the works for a Hitman series, with the intention of airing the series (should it get picked up from the pilot) on Hulu. Kolstad, who wrote the screenplay for the first and upcoming third John Wick movies, will write the pilot script for the series. Kolstad wrote the first John Wick movie released in 2014 and he's now penning the third one coming in 2019.

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.

Once again there's going to be another live-action Hitman adaptation. Kolstad will serve as an executive producer for the Hitman show which Fox 21 hopes to be a new "flagship" series for the company.


Hitman's recent resurgence must've gained some notoriety, and I suppose its time as a film series is done, so now it's getting adapted into a Hulu exclusive TV series.

If you've played any of IO Interactive's Hitman games, you know how episodic the setup is: Agent 47 and his bald, bar-coded head travel to locations both exotic and mundane - sometimes in creative disguise - and carry out murder assignments that involve espionage at the highest global levels. Sure, we've already had two movies that both failed miserably but this newly announced TV show has some great people behind it. The report from Deadline also noted that there are two new Hitman games in the works which is interesting, to say the least.
