And, Chris Collins (Sons of Anarchy, The Wire) has signed on as a writer and showrunner.
For well over six months, there's been talk brewing about a John Wick TV show getting spun off from the films.
With a working title "The Continental", the series will revolve around the hotel featured in both John Wick movies in which criminals and assassins can find safe harbor. The Continental will be a series about the film's hotel chain built for assassins.
Senior Vice President of Original Programming Karen Bailey will oversee for Starz, which has the domestic TV and SVOD rights, while Lionsgate has all global and domestic distribution and home entertainment rights.
The John Wick movies are absolutely top-tier action cinema: stylish, witty and pleasingly violent. The first episode is scheduled to be directed by Chad Stahelski, who also directed "John Wick 2" and co-directed the first film. He earlier called The Continental "truly unlike anything else on TV", adding that it "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 introducing some new, darkly compelling characters who inhabit this underground world". John Wick veterans David Leitch, Derek Kolstad and Basil Iwanyk are executive producers along with Reeves. No targeted premiere date's been announced yet, but you can bet your ass you'll know as soon as we do.
While it remains uncertain as to what will happen with Starz' American Gods series, they apparently already have something pretty big lined up, as it's been announced that a John Wick series will be moving forward at the network! I think the world is very vast, and everything I've heard from it is very positive.
