More details have emerged about the new Hitman TV series in the works from John Wick writer Derek Kolstad, and the big takeaway is that Agent 47 will actually have hair on the show.
Kolstad, who wrote the first two episodes of the prequel show, told Collider that his version of Agent 47 for the TV show is “very much the hitman we know from the games,” except with hair. Kolstad said Agent 47 will have a “full head of hair” in the show, and he’s “independent,” which means he might not be working for the International Contract Agency (ICA) from the games.
“He has a handler, he’s got a life, he’s very much that early ’80s, late ’70s assassin we read about in the books, right? But at a certain point, he gets a gig, and that gig unveils the reality that no choice he’s ever made has been his own,” Kolstad said. “And of course, the show ends with him at a mirror, finding hidden under his skin, the barcode. So suddenly it becomes a mystery of ‘who am I, really?’ [Jason] Bourne did that excellently. This is more of, ‘What is true in regards to the people in my life? What has been manufactured, what are thoughts, etc.’ It’s the nature versus nurture of it all.”
