'John Wick' TV Spinoff Coming to Starz; Keanu Reeves Expected to Guest

'John Wick' TV Spinoff Coming to Starz; Keanu Reeves Expected to Guest

Writer/producer Chris Collins (writer on The Wire, producer on Sons of Anarchy) will be showrunner and write The Continental. The John Wick universe will expand in the series by focusing on the Continental Hotel and the assassins who find refuge under its roof. Meanwhile, a third John Wick film is now in production.

As expected, The Continental will be set in the same world as John Wick, and will revolve around that assassin hotel, which was one of the more interesting aspects of the film series. "So now, he kind of had to choose where to put his time, and he's kind of vested into John Wick - at least for the series and No. 3". Starz President of Original Programming Carmi Zlotnick said Keanu Reeves will be involved in multiple capacities.

Starz has announced they will be adapting the John Wick film franchise (which now consists two films and a third "Chapter 3" installment slated for 2019), into an original TV series.

Hoyer: You know who's offensive? Nancy Pelosi
Fiat Chrysler will use the savings for employees and also move a plant from Saltillo, Mexico to Warren Michigan. The "white guys" comment was quickly rebuked by Hoyer, who called it " offensive ".

Speaking to open the Starz panels at the Television Critics Assn. press tour on Friday, network Chief Executive Chris Albrecht said "The Continental" and the movies will exist side by side. "The Continental promises to include the thunderous fight sequences and intensely staged shootouts between professional assassins and their targets that fans have come to expect in the John Wick movie franchise as well as introduce some new, darkly compelling characters who inhabit this underground world".

John Wick is the latest film franchise to get a series treatment. Other members of the team behind the film franchise that executive produces alongside Reeves include Thunder Road Pictures' Basil Iwanyk, Chad Stahelski, John Wick franchise screenwriter Derek Kolstad, along with Collins and David Leitch. I think the world is very vast, and everything I've heard from it is very positive.

Starz is a Lionsgate company and Lionsgate releases the John Wick films.
