A 'John Wick' TV Series Called 'The Continental' Is In The Works

Legendary assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) retired from his violent career after marrying the love of his life.

"The show and movies exist side by side", Albrecht said.

In an interview with Indiewire, Stahelski said: "It's very tied to the film, it's about the Continentals all over the world, how certain people come into that world, and what happens in relation to those people, which is cool".

Ever since the first time we ventured into the plush interior of The Continental in the first John Wick, I've wanted to know more about the place.

Saturday's Super 6 Picks: Chelsea To Beat Leicester At Stamford Bridge
Before I watched the Carabao Cup semi-final with Arsenal I would have said Chelsea would win this 3-0, but I'm not so sure now. Islam Slimani worked well in a mostly full strength Leicester side last time out, scoring two goals against Huddersfield Town.

Retail Pulled Off Strongest Holiday in Years Despite Apocalypse Narrative
Throughout the season, NRF said clothing and accessories sales saw a 2.7 percent uptick year-over-year. Excluding auto sales, retail sales still rose by 0.4% in December after jumping by 1.3% in November.

China, the main source of North Korea's fuel, did not export any gasoline, jet fuel, diesel or fuel oil to its neighbour in November.

And as one last, friendly reminder, John Wick: Chapter Three comes to theaters on May 17, 2019.

It's a ideal fit for Starz which, among its original programming line up, offers hits like Outlander and Black Sails and the upcoming spy series Counterpoint. We're about to find out, because the amusing five-star hotel with likely Michelin Star dining in John Wick, which grew into being a whole underground franchise with its own governing bylaws and multiple, unique-to-assassins currencies by John Wick: Chapter 2, is about to be the basis of its own TV show! "We're very excited about this". The Continental will explore the inner workings of the Continental hotel.

Starz CEO and President Chris Albrecht said of the series, "This series is truly unlike anything else on TV".

It'll also be fun to see assassins working within the strict rules created to keep the clientele from assassinating one another - even though the penalties for conducting business on the premises generally involve a grisly death, it's hard to keep a roomful of professional killers calm for too long. Writer/producer Chris Collins (writer on The Wire, producer on Sons of Anarchy) will be showrunner and write The Continental. Other members of the team behind the film franchise that executive produces alongside Reeves include Thunder Road Pictures' Basil Iwanyk, Chad Stahelski, John Wick franchise screenwriter Derek Kolstad, along with Collins and David Leitch.
