This time, they are teaming up with Fox and Hulu to bring the popular video game to television screens. Kolstad wrote the first film and did the script for the third film in the series, which hits theaters in 2019.
According to Deadline, Kolstad will be writing the pilot script for Hitman, as well as executive producing alongside Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon. The project will be overseen at Fox 21 by Bert Salke, Jane Francis, Gloria Fan and Kira Innes, and at Hulu by Jordan Helman. But knowing that Hulu intends on making this a flagship series, we fully expect all involved in its production to put forth their best effort.
Murray and Soares beaten in first match at ATP Finals
The Bryans broke serve at the end of the first set to clinch it 7-5 before taking an early lead in the second. And Dimitrov finally triumphed after two hours and 22 minutes, serving out victory via a nervy deuce.
Hitman has been a huge success, selling over 25 million copies of its game since it was released in 2000. Revolving around the stoic Agent 47, a bald guy with a barcode tattoo on his skull nobody seems to notice, is all about creatively bumping off jerks who really have operatic deaths coming to them in some of the world's most glamorous locales. Yeah, they don't bring that part up all that much in the video games. The final game in the series so far was released episodically, from March 2016 through December of that year.
There were two films based on the game franchise, both released by Fox. The film starred Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott, Robert Knepper and Olga Kurylenko. 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.
