Fox 21 Television Studios and Hulu have teamed up to bring a Hitman TV Series into the world. Kolstad was the man behind the original John Wick screenplay and a planned third movie in the hit franchise. Joining him on the latter duty will also be Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon, who were involved in the Hitman films. It has players taking on the role of Agent 47 as he figures out ways to use the environment and an assortment of tools and weapons to eliminate his targets.

There have been two attempts at adapting Hitman for screen in the last decade, and neither fared well. We say that because, believe it or not, our favorite bald contract killer is slated to carry out his next mission via a new Hitman series set to debut on a popular streaming service. 2007's Hitman, starring a weirdly cast Timothy Olyphant, was goofy fun but not particularly in keeping with what the series excelled at. Deadline reports that Hulu hopes for Hitman to become one of their flagship series, along the lines of the Emmy-winning The Handmaid's Tale. The project will be overseen at Fox 21 by Bert Salke, Jane Francis, Gloria Fan and Kira Innes, and at Hulu by Jordan Helman. And just one week after IO Interactive released the Hitman: Game of the Year Edition, Agent 47 got a different kind of contract - a television one.
