  • A Hitman TV Series Is Currently In Development

For no reason that we can imagine someone is trying to make a live action Hitman again.

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. No sooner is the GOTY Edition of the latest Hitman adventure out of the door that it transpires a new Hitman TV series is in development for streaming service Hulu.

Hulu wants to hire Agent 47 for a hit ... However, the news that John Wick creator, Derek Kolstad, will write and produce the series does relieve the worry and tension a little bit.

Xbox One S drops to its lowest ever price for Black Friday
The Surface Pro i5 with 265GB of storage will be marked down $329, and the model with 128GB of storage will be reduced by $229. A highlight each Black Friday season are the Black Friday laptop deals in the Microsoft Store Black Friday sale .

The Deadline report also says that IO Interactive is working on two new Hitman games. Kolstad's understated writing and ability to create a just-so fantasy world of hitman hotels and elegant "rules" dictating fistfights in Rome's streets should serve the video game well, considering its backstory is a mix of James Bond-esque homicidal glamor and goofy SF. As of right now though, an actor has yet to be chosen for the role of Agent 47. The games, however, tell a different tale.

Speaking of the games, Hitman: Season One was recently re-released after Io split from owners Square Enix and returned to being and independent studio.

The 2007 Hitman film, directed by Skip Woods, saw Timothy Olyphant play Agent 47. No, but John Wick is a fantastic series, with the third part in the trilogy due out in 2019.
