Hitman TV Series Coming to Hulu from 'John Wick' Creator

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. His job certainly isn't easy. There was a secret assassin society that was set up and then built upon even further in the sequel and the world of John Wick is rich with exploration, which means that Hitman shouldn't be new territory for Derek Kolstad.

Aaron Judge Unanimously Named 2017 AL Rookie of the Year
The 22-year-old, who split time between first base and the outfield, batted.271 with 97 RBIs for the National League champions. The Dodgers won 104 games, the most in the major leagues this year and the most by any Dodgers team in 64 years.

Hitman has been a huge success, selling over 25 million copies of its game since it was released in 2000. Hulu will work in conjunction with 21st Century Fox on a pilot script that will eventually transform Hitman into what the online network hopes will become "a flagship series". The report from Deadline also noted that there are two new Hitman games in the works which is interesting, to say the least.

Russian Federation moves to restrict USA media operations in response to RT clampdown
Moscow has repeatedly denied the allegations of election meddling and said it views the actions against RT as an unfriendly act. The embassy warned restrictions on the activities of Russian media "would inevitably entail immediate and reciprocal measures".

Now, you can say all you want about his silver screen outings - Hitman and Hitman: Agent 47 - but I enjoyed them both to varying degrees. Unlike 2007's Hitman film, or 2015's Hitman: Agent 47, the planned Hitman adaptation will be for a new TV series on Hulu. 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. With the "John Wick" writer behind him, maybe there's reason to believe Agent 47 will find his mark this time.
