What do you think of this?
For well over six months, there's been talk brewing about a John Wick TV show getting spun off from the films.
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).
The third John Wick film is set to be in theatres May 17th, 2019 and Lionsgate picked up the rights to a script called The Ballerina that is meant to be worked into the universe, as well.
"This is an opportunity to really engage in the phenomenal fan base that has risen up around the John Wick franchises", Albrecht said. "[It's] one of those great social media phenomenal fan bases that just help have a voice in recommending shows to peers".
Franchise newcomer Chris Collins (who developed a name for himself through Sons of Anarchy, The Wire, and The Man in the High Castle) will be heading the series as showrunner. Moreover, the show aims to include "thunderous fight sequences and intensely staged shootouts between professional assassins and their targets".
The third John Wick movie, which stars Keanu, is due out in theaters in 2019. 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.
