Starz developing a John Wick TV series with Keanu Reeves on board as a producer
Titled The Continental, the potential TV series will be set in the John Wick universe, focusing on the inner-workings of the exclusive Continental Hotel, a refuge for assassins. The John Wick film’s creative team is on board as producers, including franchise screenwriter Derek Kolstad, along with star Keanu Reeves. "This series is truly unlike anything else on TV,” says Starz CEO Chris Albrecht. “The Continental 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.” ALSO: Starz sets premiere dates for Howard’s End, Vida and Sweetbitter. UPDATE: Albrecht says "you can expect to see" Keanu Reeves "at some point in the series."
