John Wick TV series in development, Keanu Reeves may guest star”

Starz and Lionsgate are teaming to develop The Continental, a television series adaptation of the highly successful Lionsgate film franchise.

While it was originally reported that Reeves will not star in the series, word came from the TCA panel that he will likely make an appearance on the show. Now, the franchise can add one more thing to that impressive list: a television series as Starz.

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. The assassin friendly hotel is a major player in the John Wick universe, with several establishments across the world. 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." .

"Yes, Keanu is an executive producer", Zlotnick said.

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

But that's not all: Keanu Reeves will serve as an executive producer and appear as the hitman he portrayed in 2014's John Wick and last year's John Wick: Chapter 2. United States network Starz made the announcement at the Television Critics' Association's winter press tour, adding that it and Lionsgate were working on a series called The Continental, based on the inner workings of the global hotel chain that caters to assassins. Stahelski will direct the premiere episode. Chad Stahelski, director of the John Wick motion pictures, would direct the pilot. Chris Collins, best known for his work on Sons of Anarchy, The Wire and Amazon's The Man in the High Castle will act as showrunner on the series.
