Hitman's Next Target is a Hulu Television Series

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

There's a television adaptation of Hitman coming to Hulu, and its pilot is being handled by the writer of one of the best action flicks in the last few years, John Wick. Neither of which were exactly cinematic masterpieces, but Fox clearly has enough faith in the series that this will be the one that sticks, given 'the hope is for Hitman to become a flagship series'. Not only is Io Interactive's working on two separate Hitman projects, there's even a TV series in the works. Handled on behalf of the organisation by Diana Burnwood, Agent 47 is known as the deadliest and most efficient killer of the bunch. Hitman was more loosely based on the games, which involved trained orphans instead of cloned assassins, and was set in a different continuity where the Agency had a different name (the Organization).

The story revolves around Agent 47 (usually simply referred to as "47" or "Mr. 47"), a cloned assassin-for-hire, whose flawless record places him in high demand among the wealthy and elite. It was followed by a reboot in 2015, which received negative reviews.

Hitman, the video game franchise, seems practically built for Hollywood.

The 2007 Hitman film, directed by Skip Woods, saw Timothy Olyphant play Agent 47.

The series is not new to the film medium.

Television, on the other hand, could provide a more flexible narrative format for a game of potentially flourish.

Third time lucky for a live action Hitman?

Derek Kolstad has been tapped to write the pilot script.
