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

'John Wick' TV Series in the Works at Starz (With Keanu Reeves Attached)

The premium cable network is working on a show titled The Continental, which will be set in the John Wick universe with a pilot that will be shot (and shot, and shot, and shot!) by Chad Stahelski (the co-director of John Wick and the sole director of John Wick: Chapter 2).

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.

I'm thinking he's back. "The Continental is set in John Wick's universe". The show will focus on the odd events that occur inside the hotel-for-assassins, The Continental, according to Deadline.

The third John Wick film is set to be in theatres May 17th, 2019 and Lionsgate picked up the rights to a script called The Ballerina that is meant to be worked into the universe, as well.

"This series is truly unlike anything else on TV", said Chris Albrecht, Starz president and CEO.

A series adaptation of the John Wick franchise had been eyed for some time, with Stahelski teasing months ago that there was strong interest and that Lionsgate was already in early development on the project. Writer/producer Chris Collins (writer on The Wire, producer on Sons of Anarchy) will be showrunner and write The Continental.

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. The announcement came at the Television Critics Association, where Starz revealed that John Wick actor Keanu Reeves is expected to appear in the series, but not as the lead character.

Stahelski, will direct the premiere episode of The Continental and said, "They've got a really good structure".
