Share

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! Last year Chad Stahelski, who co-directed the first film and directed the second, revealed plans for a television spin-off called The Continental and now it has found a home at Starz. The "John Wick" franchise has grossed nearly $300 million worldwide at the box office. Chris Collins (Sons of Anarchy, The Wire) will write the series and serve as showrunner, which will be executive produced by John Wick's Basil Iwanyk, Stahelski, and Kolstad, along with Collins, David Leitch, and Keanu Reeves.

TV networks have been trying to turn every movie they can into series.
