John Wick 5 will rise! More spin-offs are on the way
At the beginning of 2023, John Wick came to the cinemas with the fourth installment of his adventures and it was wondered if it would be a farewell to this character. Former show director Chad Stahelski suggested that they would sit down to talk especially with the actor, Keanu Reeves and will consider whether or not to continue. However, now Joe Drake, head of Motion Picture Group, confirmed at a meeting with shareholders that a fifth film is in the works and is in the early stages of development.
He explained that they are closely watching the development of the franchise and want to provide the public with new chapters of this world, responding to their clear appetites. He also mentions working on four productions, and among them he has mentioned only the fifth part of John Wick, the film ballerina and the series The Continental.
So we’re building the world, and when this fifth movie comes out, it’s going to be organic – it’s going to grow organically from how we start telling these stories.
Chad Stahelski spoke about the fourth spin-off and confirmed that work on the next series is underway, which will tell more stories in this universe. No more details have been revealed yet. There’s still a lot of talk going on as the franchise grows and how many stories it can tell and whether people will want to watch it. The future should be rich for fans of the series though, as there are even plans for video games in this world.
Ballerina and The Continental – what are the productions about?
The Continental is a series created for the American platform Peacock. The production will consist of three episodes, each of which will last ninety minutes. The action of the production takes place in the title hotel, which is a shelter for assassins from around the world.
