Hitman is getting a TV series on Hulu streaming service

Hitman Agent 47 John Wick

Developer IO Interactive has made a dead with production company Fox 21 and the Hulu streaming series to create a show based on the Hitman video game series, as Deadline first reported.

The latest game, which was released episodically throughout 2016, was a critical success and sold over 7 million copies.

Hitman, showcasing the signature shaved head, barcode tattoo, slick suits and dual pistols of anti-hero Agent 47, has been a monumental multimedia presence since its 2000 video game debut, spawning several sequels and even two film adaptations.


Kolstad will also be executive producing the project alongside Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon. Revolving around the stoic Agent 47, a bald guy with a barcode tattoo on his skull nobody seems to notice, is all about creatively bumping off jerks who really have operatic deaths coming to them in some of the world's most glamorous locales.

Hitman's two outings to the silver screen have not set the box office on fire, although I quite enjoyed the first film, and now our shiny headed hero is heading to an altogether smaller screen. Both 2007's Hitman and 2015's Hitman: Agent 47 were released by Fox and failed to resonate with critics and audiences. 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. The other could be a mobile game for all we know.

Third time lucky for a live action Hitman?
