Starz Developing 'John Wick' TV Series Adaptation 'The Continental'

The mystery woman Keanu Reeves was spotted out to dinner with in West Hollywood on Monday night is artist and

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Starz has announced that they are developing a new series called The Continental, which is named after the assassination organization that the title anti-hero works for.

A press release elaborated that The Continental focuses on the inner workings of the hotel.

Writer/producer Chris Collins (Sons of Anarchy, The Wire, The Man in the High Castle) will write the series and serve as showrunner.

The original John Wick was praised for its heavy emphasis on world-building with a world that was built around an economy of assassins, which was done in a way not to set up a bunch of sequels as many franchise-hopefuls are wont to do, but to flesh out the otherwise-simple narrative. 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".

One obvious question is whether John Wick star Keanu Reeves will make an on-screen appearance (he is one of the show's producers).

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. In an age of cinematic universes where franchises and IPs shine brightest, the resurgence of Keanu Reeves' career in John Wick was a welcomed entry in theaters. Stahelski will direct the premiere of The Continental, should the script move forward.

"The shows and the movies exist side-by-side", Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht added.

After the launch of John Wick Chapter 2, it was speculated that there might be a television series that would go deeper into the world of John Wick, but now we have confirmation.
