We’re massive fans of the John Wick franchise and are dying to see the first trailer for John Wick: Chapter 3. There are attempts to spin-off that world of assassins with the feature film Ballerina (expected to be set up in Wick 3) and a series focusing on the chain of hotels titled The Continental.
Lance Reddick plays a role in the franchise that could see him part of these spin-offs and more importantly the Starz series The Continental as he plays the hotel manager Charon in the New York City location.
Our friends over at DiscussingFilm were able to ask Reddick if he’d be willing to be part of the series since he hasn’t been confirmed for the show as it’s said to be set in Los Angeles, not New York City.
DISCUSSINGFILM: They are also developing a spin-off TV Series for Starz titled The Continental, is that something you’d like to be apart of?
LANCE REDDICK: Yep. If there’s a way to make it work with my other television commitments, I would love to be a part of it.
Keanu Reeves’s Wick is said to be appearing in the series but won’t be the main character and director Chad Stahelski will reportedly helm the first episode.
It’s been almost a year since we had any sort of concrete update on either Ballerina or The Continental, but we should hear more news once Lionsgate starts the promotion for John Wick: Chapter 3 that is being released on May 17th, 2019.
