John Wick: The Continental TV Show May Include Ian McShane

John Wick TV show spinoff The Continental may be bringing back a familiar face in Ian McShane. The original John Wick seemingly came out of nowhere back in 2014, and on the surface it looked like a silly action flick where Keanu Reeves avenges his murdered dog. The movie turned out to be one of the best action films of that year, with Reeves perfectly cast as the legendary hitman. The film also had a great supporting cast, and the amount of world-building surrounding the film’s criminal underworld added an intriguing layer to the story.

‘John Wick’ TV Series Confirmed

John Wick is one of those films that surprised audiences with just how good it was.

It wasn’t just Keanu that made the film however, it was the fictional world dreamt-up by writer Derek Kolstad; a world populated by secret assassins who trade in gold coins and have their own dedicated chain of hotels – The Continental. As the films have been so popular, and with the forthcoming John Wick: Chapter Three being the final film, Lionsgate and Starz are now working together to bring a television show based on the hotel to small screens worldwide.
