Hitman TV show coming to Hulu; Being written by John Wick creator

The pilot is being written by Derek Kolstad.

Hitman has been a huge success, selling over 25 million copies of its game since it was released in 2000.

Fox has attempted to bring this character to life before in two feature films, with 2007's Hitman starring Timothy Olyphant and 2015's Hitman: Agent 47 starring Rupert Friend.

Players are eagerly awaiting what's next for the franchise and while IO Interactive is already hard at work at a new entry in the series, it sounds like we'll have even more Hitman to consume in other entertainment mediums.

Additionally, Kolstad will executive produce alongside Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon, with the series being overseen by Fox 21's Bert Salke, Jane Francis, Gloria Fan, and Kira Innes and Hulu's Jordan Helman.

The original Boaty McBoatface vote ended with the vessel being named RSS Sir David Attenborough , with a smaller submersible taking the title.

All our nightmares about the end of Agent 47's career seem to have been for naught, as there's plenty more Hitman in development across various media.

Kolstad's skill for writing assassins is, of course, pretty firmly established at this point though - hopefully he'll do a better job.

There's no word on when this show will hit Hulu but it's likely a ways off.

With that, you'd expect any subsequent live action attempts to go the stealthier route, but let's not forget that Hollywood loves its explosions. The report from Deadline also noted that there are two new Hitman games in the works which is interesting, to say the least.
