A Hitman TV Series Is Currently In Development

Hulu plans to make a Hitman television series with 'John Wick' creator

The pilot episode will be penned by Derek Kolstad, the creator and writer of the much-loved and violent John Wick film series. However, the franchise will soon make its deadly mark in new territory, with Hulu's plans for a television series adaptation.

This is not the first time the series has gone outside of gaming. Aleksander Bach directed Hitman: Agent 47 in 2015. Earlier this year, publisher Square Enix separated from IO and worked out a deal to let the developer retain the rights to the series.

Sierra Nevada conducted a successful glide and landing test flight with its Dream Chaser spaceplane on Saturday, November 11. Dream Chaser made a landing at a USA air force base Edwards, which is located in the Mojave desert in California.

Hitman's two outings to the silver screen have not set the box office on fire, although I quite enjoyed the first film, and now our shiny headed hero is heading to an altogether smaller screen. Novel-to-screen adaptations face a similar dilemma, in that film and television provide different benefits when it comes to transferring a source material from one medium to another. 2007's Hitman, starring a weirdly cast Timothy Olyphant, was goofy fun but not particularly in keeping with what the series excelled at. Agent 47 introduced the character as an enhanced supersoldier played by Rupert Friend. Fox 21 will oversee the project, with Bert Salke, Jane Francis, Gloria Fan and Kira Innes working alongside Hulu's Jordan Helman.

If you've played any of IO Interactive's Hitman games, you know how episodic the setup is: Agent 47 and his bald, bar-coded head travel to locations both exotic and mundane - sometimes in creative disguise - and carry out murder assignments that involve espionage at the highest worldwide levels. Joining Askareih is Chuck Gordon, who also helped produce the two Hitman movies.
