Hulu working on live-action Hitman 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.

European Union takes step towards closer defence cooperation
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini described the signing of PESCO as a "historic moment in European defense". Mrs Mogherini said the move would not only complement Nato's security aims but fill in gaps in the Atlantic alliance.

Hitman centres on Agent 47, a nameless assassin who initially works for the secretive International Contract Agency (ICA), taking assassination requests for high-end clients.

There have been two attempts at adapting Hitman for screen in the last decade, and neither fared well. The pilot is being written by Derek Kolstad. Agent 47 was portrayed by Timothy Olyphant and Rupert Friend respectively.

The entire project will be overseen by Bert Salke, Jane Francis, and Gloria Fan, all of whom are head honchos over at Fox 21 Television Studios. And just one week after IO Interactive released the Hitman: Game of the Year Edition, Agent 47 got a different kind of contract - a television one.
