'Hitman' TV Series From 'John Wick' Creator Coming To Hulu

  • A Hitman TV Series Is Currently In Development

The new, as-yet-unnamed Hitman series is tentatively slated for a 2019 release on Hulu.

It's a low-key money-earner, in other words, and maybe bringing in a dude who's proven himself talented when it comes to crafting narratives around stone-cold killers, badass conspiracies, and elaborate assassination attempts will turn out to be a flawless marriage. Fox 21 and Hulu have teamed up for a new adaptation with the pilot being written by John Wick screenwriter Derek Kolstad.

Hitman, showcasing the signature shaved head, barcode tattoo, slick suits and dual pistols of anti-hero Agent 47, has been a monumental multimedia presence since its 2000 video game debut, spawning several sequels and even two film adaptations.

The new television series is still in the early stages of development and does not now have an expected release date. The whole appeal of the Hitman games is each level is a wicked little puzzle box where the prize is figuring out how to pull off the flawless murder, and that's been hard to translate to the movies.

Kolstad, who wrote the first two critically-acclaimed John Wick films and the upcoming third installment, will serve as an executive producer on the new Hitman series. The story centers on Agent 47, a lethal and meticulous assassin with an especially mysterious history. 20th Century Fox released two films based on the series - one in 2007, with Timothy Olyphant playing the franchise's iconic titular character, and another in 2015. Yeah, they don't bring that part up all that much in the video games. Both movies leaned too heavily on noisy action and set pieces though and lacked the suspense and tension of the games.
