Hitman to Become Hulu TV Series

A Hitman TV Series Is Currently In Development

Hitman Series in Development at Hulu from John Wick Creator

Understandably, that news may make staunch purists panic, but as a lover of both franchises, I'd love to see what Kolstad can bring to Hitman's world. It is none other than Derek Kolstad, creator and writer of the gun-crazy John Wick movie series who will be responsible for bringing Agent 47 to life in the small screen. And just one week after IO Interactive released the Hitman: Game of the Year Edition, Agent 47 got a different kind of contract - a television one. According to Deadline, Kolstad's on board to write the pilot and executive produce the series.

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

With that, you'd expect any subsequent live action attempts to go the stealthier route, but let's not forget that Hollywood loves its explosions. Film adaptations of Agent 47's adventures have often failed to figure this out, instead opting to give audiences loud gunfights and hand-to-hand melees.

Police locate one of three missing Chinese students linked to ransom scam
She was last seen wearing a knee-length brown jacket with a white scarf, blue track trousers and black and white shoes. Liu became aware it was a scam Sunday night and contacted police, Sidhu explained.

Incidentally, Deadline also reports that there are now two Hitman games in development. Not only is Io Interactive's working on two separate Hitman projects, there's even a TV series in the works. John Wick is a great framework to pull a series like this from, but without Chad Stahelski at the helm I'm cautiously optimistic as to what the end result will be.

We'll continue to keep you posted as this story develops.
