There is good news for all John Wick fans , as more details were revealed about the next project in the franchise (not counting the movies) The Continental, a prequel series to the story of our favorite killer.
The Continental will take place 40 years before the events of the first film, confirming that Keanu Reeves will not be involved in the project (at least not in front of the camera).
It was the president of Lionsgate Television, Kevin Beggs, who told Deadline that the series will focus on the character of Winston (in his young version) and the plot will take place in a New York of the 70s.
“What we are exploring at The Continental is young Winston and how he and his team of accomplices came to this hotel that we first met in the film franchise 40 years later,” Kevin Beggs explained.
On the other hand (and despite the temporary nature of the series), the collaboration of Keanu Reeves is still desired, so talks are being held with the actor so that he can join The Continental as executive producer.
“We are in the John Wick universe , but we are way back in time. Keanu and Chad have read all the drafts and enthusiastically supported the expansion of this universe in a meaningful way. So I never rule out anything but in this point is quite busy making his films that are very important to us, “said Beggs.
As you surely know, The Continental is the famous hotel that works as a base for all murderers and where they are prohibited from attacking each other. It seems that this time, John Wick will not visit him and we will have to wait for his films to see him again.
