John Wick is one of the recent franchises that I’ve really locked on to. I’ve enjoyed both of the films released so far and the world keeps getting bigger and bigger. Now a John Wick series is officially underway at Starz.
The Continental is the reported title and it will revolve around the inner workings of the assassin hotel that has appeared in the movies. It will likely take place in the same universe as the movies, but it hasn’t been confirmed whether Keanu Reeves will appear in the series or not. Ian McShane could also possibly be involved who has already been involved in a Starz show American Gods.
Reeves will be a producer for the series and Chad Stahlelski, the director of the first two films is going to direct the pilot episode. The co-director of the first movie and Deadpool 2 director David Lietch is also attached as a producer.
If production gets underway it could be set for a premiere by 2019, the same year as John Wick 3 is expected to hit theaters.
