'John Wick' TV Show in the Works (But Not Starring Keanu Reeves)

'John Wick' TV Show in the Works (But Not Starring Keanu Reeves)

"The Continental is going to be set in the John Wick universe at his hotel that is a refuge for assassins".

The John Wick movie franchise has been a box-office hit grossing a little over over $250 million against a less than $70 million budget.

Sons of Anarchy's Chris Collins plans to pen the script and serve as showrunner.

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

Beyond this, the character of LEGO Batman has been confirmed to appear in The LEGO Movie 2, which is set for a 2019 release, meaning we are more than likely to see the entire Bat Family (Robin, Barbara, Alfred) appear in the film, as well.

The hotel behind the John Wick movies is getting its own TV series - The Continental. It's very tied to the film [in that] it's about the Continentals all over the world, how certain people come into that world, and what happens in relation to those people, which is cool.

"This is an opportunity to really engage in the phenomenal fan base that has risen up around the John Wick franchises", Albrecht said.

"This series is truly unlike anything else on TV", Starz president and CEO Chris Albrecht says. The show will focus on the odd events that occur inside the hotel-for-assassins, The Continental, according to Deadline. Stahelski meanwhile will continue his directorial appointments at the Continental's undoubtedly austere lobby by directing The Continental pilot after previously directing John Wick: Chapter 2 and co-directing the first John Wick with Leitch (Leitch went on afterward to direct Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2).

The team behind The Continental will include other veterans from the John Wick franchise including screenwriter Derek Kolstad and star Keanu Reeves, who will serve as an executive producer.

Keanu Reeves will be involved with the series as an executive producer, and it's possible he'll show up in an episode.
