Hulu working on live-action Hitman series

But perhaps a TV series adaptation of Hitman could finally hit its target. Hulu, Fox, and Kolstad plan to make the show follow closely to the lore and mythology of the games, meaning that you likely won't have those very bad over the top action sequences that we saw in Agent 47. We got two Hollywood movies in 2007 and 2015. Knowing Kolstad's background with John Wick, also expect plenty of accurate gunplay. According to Deadline, FOX and Hulu have tapped the John Wick series creator and writer Derek Kolstad to write the pilot episode with the hopes it'll become a major series for the subscription service.

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.

Genetically engineered from conception to be the flawless killing machine, he's the culmination of decades of research, endowed with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. 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. With help from a young woman, the elite assassin confronts revelations about his own origins in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.

If you've never played the Hitman games, they're fairly straightforward.
