TripAdvisor targeting sexual assault with new feature
Tripadvisor said the review went against its policy of permitted reviews which used "family friendly" language. TripAdvisor also removed her posts warning other users about her experience.

Previously, there was a Hitman movie starring Timothy Olyphant, but it wasn't exactly the kind of film that inspired confidence in the Hitman fanbase. Hitman was more loosely based on the games, which involved trained orphans instead of cloned assassins, and was set in a different continuity where the Agency had a different name (the Organization). With new games planned, Agent 47's episodic series is in rude health-and is now in-line for a television series. Director Xavier Gens released Hitman in 2007 to negative reviews, though the film did gross $99 million on a $24 million budget.

The series is not new to the film medium. The other could be a mobile game for all we know. Maybe the third time's the charm. Is it the most adventurous move on Kolstad's part?

Kolstad wrote the original John Wick and this year's sequel.
