Hulu plans to make a Hitman television series with 'John Wick' creator

Hitman Agent 47 John Wick

The best-selling video game, Hitman, will be getting a TV adaptation.

The news comes from Deadline which reported that Fox 21 and Hulu have made a decision to team up for an original Hitman television series. Over the years, the Hitman franchise has sold well over 25 million copies; since the original game debuted in 2000.

Hitman is a popular video game series starring the cool character of Agent 47. Joining him on the latter duty will also be Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon, who were involved in the Hitman films. 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.

A Hitman TV series is now in the works by John Wick franchise creator Derek Kolstad.

This won't be the first time that Hitman's been taken out of the gaming environment for a turn in front of the camera. This will be the third attempt to bring the acclaimed series to life, after 2007's Hitman and 2015's Hitman: Agent 27.

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

Hitman centres on Agent 47, a nameless assassin who initially works for the secretive International Contract Agency (ICA), taking assassination requests for high-end clients.

Kolstad is writing the pilot for the planned series. The first movie starred Timothy Olyphant (Justified) in the leading role and Rupert Friend (Homeland) in the second movie.
