John Wick's Writer Has Been Tapped for a Hitman Pilot on Hulu

Deadline reports that a new Hitman series is in the works by both Fox 21 and Hulu.

The original PC game Hitman: Codename 47 came out in 2000 and introduced the world to Agent 47, a cloned assassin whose set of skills make his services highly sought-after, not unlike Keanu Reeve's John Wick character.

Io Interactive's Hitman is getting another live-action adaptation, this time in the form of a television series for Hulu. He will also produce the series at an executive level, along with Adrian Askareih and Chuck Gordon.

Do you purchase now? Apple will also launch a successor to the iPhone X with a 5.8-inch OLED screen, according to the report . I don't know what's happening as different flagship devices are suffering from different problems one after the other.

Will a TV incarnation of Agent 47's ice-cold assassination adventures hold yours? Kolstad, who wrote the screenplay for the first and upcoming third John Wick movies, will write the pilot script for the series. With new games planned, Agent 47's episodic series is in rude health-and is now in-line for a television series.

But if Kolstad can work his magic on Hitman, perhaps there's hope for video game adaptations, which can only boast Mortal Kombat as the perennial non-pixelated adaptation. 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. The pilot is being written by Derek Kolstad.

Hopefully the new show will be better than the two previous films. The first movie starred Timothy Olyphant (Justified) in the leading role and Rupert Friend (Homeland) in the second movie.
