But perhaps a TV series adaptation of Hitman could finally hit its target.
Hulu and Fox 21 reportedly want Hitman to become a flagship TV series, and the plan is to adhere closely to the video game source material. And yet, despite an attempt with Timothy Olyphant in 2007 and another go a few years back in 2015, it didn't click with audiences.
Hollywood hasn't yet cracked the code on making a successful video game adaptation, but maybe television is the key. Hopefully, the move to television fares better than these film efforts. 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. The project will be overseen at Fox 21 by Bert Salke, Jane Francis, Gloria Fan and Kira Innes, and at Hulu by Jordan Helman.
The series will be based on the long-running series of video games featuring Agent 47.
As reported by Deadline, a pilot script is now in the works for a Hitman series, with the intention of airing the series (should it get picked up from the pilot) on Hulu. With help from a young woman, the elite assassin confronts revelations about his own origins in an epic battle with his deadliest foe. We say that because, believe it or not, our favorite bald contract killer is slated to carry out his next mission via a new Hitman series set to debut on a popular streaming service.
