HItman Is Coming To Hulu, New Series Led By John Wick Creator

Despite unfortunately having his future in the video game world from which he originated in limbo, it turns out that us fans of Agent 47 actually have something to look forward to in the not too distant future.

Fox 21 and Hulu will be developing the new series, which will be written by Derek Kolstad, creator of the John Wick film series, as well as the writer for the third installment that is set for release in 2019. The games - which are now exclusively being developed by IO Interactive since splitting with publisher Square Enix - allow players the freedom to choose how they will assassinate targets; they can sneak around using disguises and engineering tragic "accidents", or they can go in guns blazing.

The project will be a collaboration with Fox 21 and there are hopes that Hitman will become a flagship series for Hulu.

Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings will be featured in a TV series, as Amazon announced a multi-season production commitment Monday. A couple of weeks ago, we learned that Warner Bros. and Amazon were quietly working on a new Lord Of The Rings TV series .

The best-selling video game, Hitman, will be getting a TV adaptation. Neither film was received well critically. According to Deadline, Kolstad's on board to write the pilot and executive produce the series. It's still early days for the potential series, with no actors now attached.

Hitman centers on Agent 47, a nameless assassin who initially works for the secretive International Contract Agency (ICA), taking assassination requests for high-end clients. 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 ideal murder, and that's been hard to translate to the movies. The movies need to find that creativity and really surprise the audience with the kind of weird, overly planned kills that make the game so much fun. 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.

Hulu's Hitman doesn't now have an airdate but we'll keep you updated as more information arrives.
