Hitman TV Series in the Works at Hulu From John Wick Writer

A Hitman TV Series Is Currently In Development Hulu plans to make a Hitman television series with 'John Wick' creator

With that, you'd expect any subsequent live action attempts to go the stealthier route, but let's not forget that Hollywood loves its explosions.

With Kolstad on board for the Hulu series, hopefully it will take a turn for the better, or at least adapt the games in a better, more cohesive way that makes more sense for the franchise as a whole.

That said, there is one big thing that Kolstad will need to note in his creation of a Hitman series: the emphasis on stealth over action. Handled on behalf of the organisation by Diana Burnwood, Agent 47 is known as the deadliest and most efficient killer of the bunch. It seems like something that would have potential to work as a TV program, and now we'll get to see if that happens. Hitman was more loosely based on the games, which involved trained orphans instead of cloned assassins, and was set in a different continuity where the Agency had a different name (the Organization). There are six entries in the series, with the newest game having released in 2016. Director Xavier Gens released Hitman in 2007 to negative reviews, though the film did gross $99 million on a $24 million budget. As of right now though, an actor has yet to be chosen for the role of Agent 47. Agent 47 was portrayed by Timothy Olyphant and Rupert Friend respectively. 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.
