Hitman to Become Hulu TV Series

Hitman to Become Hulu TV Series

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.

We'll have more on the Hitman series as more is known.

Produced by Kolstad, Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon, Hulu's Hitman does not yet have a release date.




According to a report by Deadline Hollywood, the Hitman franchise is now heading to Hulu.

Speaking of the games, Hitman: Season One was recently re-released after Io split from owners Square Enix and returned to being and independent studio. Kolstad wrote both John Wick and John Wick Chapter 3, and is attached as the writer for the third entry in the series as well. The general premise of the "Hitman" games revolves around a high-skilled cloned assassin-for-hire simply named Agent 47, who carries out missions in association with the mysterious Agency. Kolstad's understated writing and ability to create a just-so fantasy world of hitman hotels and elegant "rules" dictating fistfights in Rome's streets should serve the video game well, considering its backstory is a mix of James Bond-esque homicidal glamor and goofy SF. The first movie starred Timothy Olyphant (Justified) in the leading role and Rupert Friend (Homeland) in the second movie.

However, someone on the other side of the argument reckons a TV series is the best fit for the franchise, saying: "Honestly Hitman is really one of those games that lends itself far better to an episodic series than it does to a movie".
