What's more is the fact that John Wick creator, Derek Kolstad, will be writing the pilot for the series. Known only as Agent 47, his latest target is a corporation that plans to unlock the secret of his past to create an army of killers even more powerful than him.
Despite unfortunately having his future in the video game world from which he originated in limbo, it turns out that us fans of Agent 47 actually have something to look forward to in the not too distant future.
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.
The new television series is still in the early stages of development and does not now have an expected release date. Not only is Io Interactive's working on two separate Hitman projects, there's even a TV series in the works. Since the release of that first game, there have been eight more Hitman video games released. In 2007, Leon: The Professional director Luc Besson produced Hitman starring Justified'sTimothy Olyphant as Agent 47. Agent 47 introduced the character as an enhanced supersoldier played by Rupert Friend.
Fox 21, Hulu, and IO Interactive have not shared any details regarding the story or structure of the new series.
"Hitman" is originally a popular series of stealth video games developed by IO Entertainment, with nine games released in total.
