'John Wick' TV Show in the Works (But Not Starring Keanu Reeves)

Keanu Reeves stars as John Wick in

Thunder Road Pictures' Basil Iwanyk will executive produce alongside the movie's directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, screenwriter Derek Kolstad and Reeves.

Starz announced today at the TCAs (via Deadline) that their John Wick spinoff, The Continental, has been officially green-lit. Details are sparse as of right now, but it is confirmed to be part of the big screen franchise and "focuses on the inner-workings of the exclusive Continental Hotel, which serves as a refuge for assassins." .

Collins will serve as writer and showrunner on the series.

"Yes, Keanu is an executive producer", Zlotnick said. To be clear, while The Continental will be set in the John Wick universe, it's by no means a series about John Wick. 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". According to the Hollywood Reporter, Reeves will appear in the show at some point if picked up. Meanwhile, a third John Wick film is now in production.

The movies star Keanu Reeves in the title role as a retired hitman.

"Howards End", a four-episode limited series, is based on E.M. Forster's novel of the same name and will premiere on Sunday, April 8.

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.

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

This story is developing. If not, The Continental is in good hands with Collins, given his wide-ranging work on television in the past.
