Keanu Reeves produce, pero probablemente no esté centrado en su personaje.


This is exciting: A John Wick-inspired TV series is now officially in development at Starz.

The premium cable network is working on a show titled The Continental, which will be set in the John Wick universe with a pilot directed by Chad Stahelski (the co-director of John Wick and the sole director of John Wick: Chapter 2).

The Continental is focused on the inner workings of the exclusive Continental Hotel which serves as a refuge for assassins. Only this version will be set in “hyper-real” Los Angeles instead of New York, like in the films.  

“This series is truly unlike anything else on TV,” pledged Starz President & CEO Chris Albrecht. “The Continental promises to include the thunderous fight sequences and intensely staged shootouts between professional assassins and their targets that fans have come to expect in the John Wick movie franchise as well as introducing some new, darkly compelling characters who inhabit this underground world.”

Writer-producer Chris Collins (Sons of Anarchy, The Wire) will write the series and serve as showrunner.

One obvious question is whether John Wick star Keanu Reeves will make an on-screen appearance (he is one of the show’s producers).

One less obvious — but potentially far more meaningful — question is whether Ian McShane will have a regular role. There’s nothing to suggest he will at this time. But in the films, McShane’s character Winston owns and runs The Continental. McShane is on another TV series right now — which would normally contractually prevent him being a regular on a second show — but that other series is American Gods which is also on Starz (and the network would presumably be more than happy to have the British actor reprise his role on this project). That’s a lot of supposition, however, and keep in mind The Continental doesn’t even have a series order yet.

The Continental seems promising, though, because, unlike some carefully negotiated TV versions of film franchises, the premise doesn’t seem too dramatically limited from what was appealing about the films in the first place.

El hombre. El mito. La leyenda… y, ahora, LA SERIE.

El canal Starz –envuelto en un pollo de cuidado en estos momentos intentando resolver el destino de American Gods— ha puesto en marcha The Continental, una nueva serie que expandirá la mitología de la saga John Wick acercándonos al hotel que sirve de zona neutral para todas las organizaciones de asesinos que pueblan su mundo. Starz es propiedad de Lionsgate, la compañía detrás de estas películas, así que es una extensión de marca que queda en casa.

Chris Collins (Sons of Anarchy, The Wire) se encargará del guión y ejercerá de showrunner si la serie recibe luz verde, con Chad Stahelski (co-director de la primera parte y director en solitario de John Wick: Pacto de sangre) como encargado del episodio piloto.

El guionista de la saga, Derek Kolstad, David Leitch (el otro co-director de la primera y responsable de Atomic Blonde y la futura Deadpool 2) y Keanu Reeves participarán como productores, con la posibilidad de que Reeves haga un cameo para unir ambas narrativas pero sin contemplarse que tenga un rol protagonista.

Chris Albrecht, CEO de Starz, describe la serie como “algo completamente diferente al resto de lo que hay en televisión. ‘The Continental’ promete incluir las impactantes peleas y los intensos tiroteos entre asesinos profesionales y sus objetivos que los fans esperan encontrarse en la franquicia cinematográfica de ‘John Wick’, así como la introducción de algunos nuevos y complejos personajes que habitan su mundo”.

Entretanto, Stahelski, Kolstad y Reeves se están preparando para el rodaje de la tercera parte de John Wick que se estrenará en 2019.
