JOHN WICK Universe to Blast Onto Small Screen in THE CONTINENTAL

JOHN WICK Universe to Blast Onto Small Screen in THE CONTINENTAL

It's official! Starz has confirmed that a TV series adaptation of "John Wick", a 2014 movie starring Keanu Reeves, is now in the works at the network.

For ages now we've been given films based on TV series and TV series based on films - all, of course, of varying success, but there have been some good'uns. Reeves is expected to make an appearance, but won't star.

The logline for the series reveals that we'll also be discovering a new branch of the Continental in the television series, this time in Los Angeles (the films introduced us to the New York City Continental, as well as seemingly more ancient satellite in Rome during John Wick: Chapter 2).

Chris Collins of "Sons of Anarchy" is writing the series and will be the showrunner should it be picked up.

Keanu Reeves will be involved with the series as an executive producer, and it's possible he'll show up in an episode. Though Reeves has not been confirmed to reprise his role as Wick on the series, he'll serve as co-executive producer along with Basil Iwanyk and Chad Stahelski, who directed all three John Wick films.

Haiti 'shocked' by Trump comments, summons U.S. envoy
The lack of full-throated denials from Trump, GOP lawmakers in attendance and the White House likely speak for themselves. In a tweet on Friday, Trump denied using the word "shithole," but Durbin insisted that the president had indeed said it.

The hotel behind the John Wick movies is getting its own TV series - The Continental.

Here's what Starz' Chris Albrecht had to say in a statement.

The John Wick movie franchise has been a box-office hit grossing a little over over $250 million against a less than $70 million budget.

In an age where launching an original franchise - much less an entire cinematic universe - is incredibly hard, John Wick is the little intellectual property that could: in the span of a mere four years, the movie has received a sequel, the announcements of a trilogy-capper and a planned spin-off entitled The Ballerina, a comic series, and a video game in development.

But then he started pondering the possibility of a TV series - no doubt because that's a format that's incredibly successful these days, thanks to the rise of streaming sites like Netflix.
