Hulu Takes Aim at a Hitman Series

But perhaps a TV series adaptation of Hitman could finally hit its target.

According to VentureBeat.com, Hulu is ready to bring Hitman to life in a new small screen series.

The property itself has been in the big screen before back in 2007 and 2015. Maybe the third time's the charm.


As reported by Deadline, a pilot script is now in the works for a Hitman series, with the intention of airing the series (should it get picked up from the pilot) on Hulu. The pilot is being written by Derek Kolstad.

Additionally, Kolstad will executive produce alongside Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon, with the series being overseen by Fox 21's Bert Salke, Jane Francis, Gloria Fan, and Kira Innes and Hulu's Jordan Helman.

Hopefully the new show will be better than the two previous films.


Genetically engineered from conception to be the flawless killing machine, he's the culmination of decades of research, endowed with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence.

Not only is Kolstad a great pick since John Wick is like Agent 47 if he went off the rails but the seeds planted in the first John Wick helped establish a much larger world, something absolutely essential in something Hitman related. Since the release of that first game, there have been eight more Hitman video games released. But if Kolstad can work his magic on Hitman, perhaps there's hope for video game adaptations, which can only boast Mortal Kombat as the perennial non-pixelated adaptation.
