A Hitman TV series and two games are in development

Hulu plans to make a Hitman television series with 'John Wick' creator

The news comes from Deadline which reported that Fox 21 and Hulu have chose to team up for an original Hitman television series.

Io Interactive's Hitman is getting another live-action adaptation, this time in the form of a television series for Hulu. Not only is Io Interactive's working on two separate Hitman projects, there's even a TV series in the works. The hopes are Hitman will become a flagship series for the streaming service.

Tennessee Coaching Rumors Roundup: Butch Jones Buyout, Jon Gruden, and More
Tennessee's Interm Head Coach Is? The next man up will be the fifth head football coach in Knoxville in the last 11 seasons. Butch's 2016 team scored 473 points and 63 touchdowns, both marks the most in a single season in Tennessee history.

The latest Hitman game just received a Game of the Year edition, complete with a new mini-campaign, and another game in the series is in the works.

The franchise follows Agent 47, a genetically modified assassin who takes targets out in ridiculous fashion, often incorporating the environment into his kills. After all, when it comes to huge triple-A gaming titles, movies and series tend to be a bit... lacklustre (I am looking directly at you, Resident Evil 7: The Final Chapter and Assassin's Creed). We got two Hollywood movies in 2007 and 2015. The games, however, tell a different tale.

The popular video game series has been adapted for the silver screen twice before in the past.
