The Hitman Video Games Are Getting A TV Series From John Wick’s Creator
That said, there is one big thing that Kolstad will need to note in his creation of a Hitman series: the emphasis on stealth over action. 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. Action is something that does occur in the Hitman series, true, but it’s typically something a player is forced into after making a mistake. If a Hitman TV series is in development, then it needs to remember that much of the excitement and charm of playing as Agent 47 comes from his ability to sneak around, steal clothing, and rig accidents — not just his ability to pull off a headshot.
