Merry belated Wick-mas!

Love the John Wick movies starring Keanu Reeves? Well, we've got good news for you: Starz is developing a TV series adaptation of the franchise. 

Set in the same universe as the films, The Continental focusing on the inner workings of the exclusive Continental Hotel which serves as a refuge for assassins. Set in a hyper-real version of Los Angeles, the series maintains the urgency of the action along with the dry humor from the John Wick movies," the network promised. 

The Wire and Sons of Anarchy's Chris Collins will serve as showrunner, Starz announced at the 2018 Winter TCA Press Tour, and many of the film franchise's producers, directors and writer will serve as producers, along with Reeves.

"This series is truly unlike anything else on TV," Starz president Chris Albrecht said in a statement. "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."

The first film came out in 2014 and starred Reeves as the legendary assassin John Wick, while the second film premiered in 2017, with the franchise developing a loyal following and making over $300 million worldwide at the box office. The third chapter will hit theaters in 2019.
