It's reported that not only will Hitman get the silver screen treatment, but it will also be written by John Wick creator Derek Kolstad.

"Hitman" is originally a popular series of stealth video games developed by IO Entertainment, with nine games released in total.

Like numerous failed video game adaptations before it, Hitman doesn't have a golden track record on the big screen. But even that series is already getting the reboot treatment, with Constantin Films tapping acclaimed horror director/producer James Wan as executive producer to develop an entirely different six-film franchise. Hulu and Fox21 are developing a series based on the franchise, set to release on the former's streaming service. Film adaptations of Agent 47's adventures have often failed to figure this out, instead opting to give audiences loud gunfights and hand-to-hand melees.

The story revolves around Agent 47 (usually simply referred to as "47" or "Mr. 47"), a cloned assassin-for-hire, whose flawless record places him in high demand among the wealthy and elite. Kolstad wrote both John Wick and John Wick Chapter 3, and is attached as the writer for the third entry in the series as well. But after two separate movies this will a TV show on Hulu. With new games planned, Agent 47's episodic series is in rude health-and is now in-line for a television series. In 2015, the series returned under director Aleksander Bach with Homeland's Rupert Friend taking the Agent 47 role.
