New John Wick series will focus on other assassins at The Continental Hotel
Remember the hotel from the John Wick movies?. Well, it was recently announced that there will be a TV show that will expand the John Wick universe. The show has been officially titled The Continental Hotel.
A lot of the team from the John Wick movies are involved. That even includes Keanu Reeves as John Wick himself. Although not the star of the show it has been confirmed that Keanu Reeves will be reprising his role as the badass doggy-loving assassin. We just don’t know how regularly he will appear on the show.
The series will be released via Starz who are known to have some pretty awesome and daring programmes.
As soon as Wick walked into that hotel in the first movie, we got introduced to some interesting characters. We should have known right there and then that The Continental Hotel is a playground for endless franchise possibilities.
I will give this a go when it arrives. I do love the movies, but mainly on a choreography level. I never found the script that engrossing but man did it not have some amazing action sequences. I loved John Wick because it didn’t pretend to be anything else other than an awesome no-brainer action movie.
I am not sure if I can be impressed weekly by a John Wick-based TV show. Way too early to be passing any sort of judgement, so we will just have to wait and see.
“This series is truly unlike anything else on TV, thunderous fight sequences and intensely staged shootouts, while exploring new darkly compelling characters who inhabit this underground world.” - Starz CEO Chris Albrecht
