Hitman Series Ordered By Hulu, John Wick Creator Penning Script
It looks like Hitman is getting a third lease on life with Hollywood. After two films that bombed, one of which was a reboot of the previous film that still failed, Deadline reported that Hulu and Fox 21 will be making a television series based on the successful IO Interactive video game. To try and make the series good, the studios have hired John Wick creator Derek Kolstad to write the script for the project.
Kolstad will be an executive producer of the series, along with Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon. The project will be overseen at Fox 21 by Bert Salke, Jane Francis, Gloria Fan and Kira Innes, and at Hulu by Jordan Helman. Apparently, there are hopes that the series will be one of the flagship series’ for the streaming network.
Hitman is considered by many gamers to be one of the best stealth series’ ever made. The new game out right now uses the episodic format brilliantly, giving players a massive area with one target to kill and endless possibilities to execute the target. Fans have praised the series for having a ton of stealth variety, letting players decide how they should kill the target, though the newest installment may have done it the best.
No release date has been revealed for the series. Fans can only hope that this ends up being better than the terrible movies.
