'Hitman' Goes To Hulu Courtesy Of A 'John Wick' Mastermind

IO Interactive

For no reason that we can imagine someone is trying to make a live action Hitman again. Over the years, the Hitman franchise has sold well over 25 million copies; since the original game debuted in 2000. Kolstad will serve as an executive producer for the Hitman show which Fox 21 hopes to be a new "flagship" series for the company.

It doesn't appear that IO Interactive have much to do with the series but I would guess they're going to get a nice wodge of cash from it.

Some people point out one of the reasons why the two movies failed was because of an excessive amount of violence, which conflicts with the main premise of the game, which is stealth. IO Interactive is working on two more new Hitman games. The first time was the universally-panned 2007 effort called "Hitman".

Hitman centres on Agent 47, a nameless assassin who initially works for the secretive International Contract Agency (ICA), taking assassination requests for high-end clients. 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. Timothy Olyphant and Rupert Friend played the movie version hitman.

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

Deadline is reporting that Kolstad, who is now writing the third John Wick film, will executive produce the series alongside Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon.
