A Hitman TV series and two games are in development

15 November, 2017, 00:51 | Author: Becky Perry

For no reason that we can imagine someone is trying to make a live action Hitman again.

Fox 21 and Hulu are partnering for a new television series based on IO Interactive's Hitman video game series.

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

It doesn't appear that IO Interactive have much to do with the series but I would guess they're going to get a nice wodge of cash from it.

The school has also changed the way it regulates fraternities and sororities, assuming more control over disciplinary procedures. Piazza in the basement video... never once obtained any of those drinks for himself", she told reporters Monday.


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. Kolstad was the man behind the original John Wick screenplay and a planned third movie in the hit franchise. The first was an eponymous 2007 movie directed by Xavier Gens.

The streaming outlet is teaming with Fox 21 to bring Hitman to the small screen, reports Deadline.

The franchise follows Agent 47, a genetically modified assassin who takes targets out in ridiculous fashion, often incorporating the environment into his kills. Since the release of that first game, there have been eight more Hitman video games released. 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. Agent 47 was portrayed by Timothy Olyphant and Rupert Friend respectively.
