'John Wick' TV Series Adaptation in the Works

039;The Continental' will be exec produced by the screenwriter behind the franchise as well as original star Reeves

John Wick co-director and John Wick: Chapter 2 director Chad Stahelski, franchise screenwriter Derek Kolstad, John Wick co-director David Leitch, Basil Iwanyk, Keanu Reeves, and Collins will serve as executive producers. Deadline reports that show producers say The Continental will be "set in a hyper-real version of Los Angeles", and will maintain "the urgency of the action along with the dry humor from the John Wick movies". "I think you can expect to see him at some point in the series". Starz is now developing a spin-off of the Keanu Reeves-starring action franchise.

John Wick is the latest feature film to get the small-screen treatment. The show will focus on the unusual events that occur inside the hotel-for-assassins, The Continental, according to Deadline. John Wick became a huge hit, so much so that John Wick: Chapter 2 hit theaters past year, and John Wick: Chapter 3 is now gearing up to start filming very soon.

John Wick, produced by Lionsgate - which now fully owns Starz - has grossed almost $300 million worldwide. To be clear, while The Continental will be set in the John Wick universe, it's by no means a series about John Wick. USA network Starz made the announcement at the Television Critics' Association's winter press tour, adding that it and Lionsgate were working on a series called The Continental, based on the inner workings of the global hotel chain that caters to assassins.

"The shows and the movies exist side-by-side", Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht added. 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 of The Continental, should the script move forward.
