Starz Is Developing A John Wick TV Series

Published

on

The John Wick universe is growing with the announcement that Starz will debut a TV series based on the films. The Continental will be set in the John Wick universe, focusing on the inner workings of the exclusive Continental Hotel which serves as a refuge for assassins.

“This series is truly unlike anything else on TV,” said Chris Albrecht, Starz president and CEO. “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 Continental will take place at a Los Angeles-based Continental hotel (thus moving it away from the traditional New York home of Mr. Wick), and the pilot will be shot by stunt guru/John Wick director Chad Stahelski. Eternal badass, Keanu Reeves, is also reportedly on board as well, serving as an Executive Producer for the show — with a cameo appearance of unknown size even expected.

John Wick: Chapter 3 will hit theaters May 17th. There is no word on when the serious will be released.

Netflix Announces New Series From Kick Ass Creator

Published

on

Netflix is ready for their own comic book franchise.

The streaming company announced a new deal series and movie deal with Mark Millar. Millar is the creator of Kick Ass, KingsmanJupiter Legacy, and Empress to name a few.

The announcement comes a year after Netflix acquired Millar’s comic book publishing company Millarworld in August 2017. Since then, the streaming platform has been developing two series based on his work called Jupiter’s Legacy and American Jesus as well as three movies: EmpressHuck, and Sharkey The Bounty Hunter.

“My wife Lucy and I are eleven months into our jobs at Netflix and it’s everything we hoped for to the power of ten,” Millar says in a press release. “To see a movie based on your work every couple of years is incredibly exciting, but to see them all happening at once like this and with talent this high-end is just off the scale. These are writers and directors I’ve privately been sending fan-mail to over the last eighteen months so to be working with them all is just enormously exciting. This really is the greatest creative environment I’ve ever worked in. I can’t wait to switch on my computer every morning.”

Aquaman Star Says Movie Is Like A Star Wars Film Underwater

Published

on

DC is hoping that Aquaman will not only save the day but jumpstart a new solo franchise.

The film recently was shown to test audiences and Warner Bros. execs. If early reports are to be believed, fans can expect an epic movie. In a recent interview with Collider, Jason Momoa compared the film to a Star Wars movie.

“I mean, that was definitely one of the amazing moments when James [Wan] told me, cause, I mean, I love Romancing the Stone-I grew up with my mother. I wasn’t watching Conan The Barbarian, I was watching Casablanca and Gone with the Wind and Rear Window and Romancing the Stone,” said Momoa, “So, I loved those movies, what I grew up with, and obviously Raiders. It’s like Star Wars, it’s just a world we haven’t seen before. And, I think the bickering between the two of them [Aquaman and Mera] and also when they slowly start to enjoy each other and fall in love, I think it’s just a timeless story that’s just fun.”

The Justice League vet also spoke about some of the underwater effects in the movie.

“I love the fact that we haven’t been underwater and, like, what we showed at Comic-Con was just showing that it’s gonna be like, when the shit hits the fan it’s gonna be like Star Wars underwater-it’s cool! I’m a huge fuckin’ Star Wars fan and I’ll never be anything remotely as good as Indiana Jones, but we can sure as fuck try! [laughs] I mean, like, I’ll never ever, ever beat him, but if we’re modeling after that, then, great, I’ll do my best. It’s something good to strive for.”

Aquaman will be in theaters December 21.

Taron Egerton Saves The Day In New Robinhood Trailer

Published

on

Lionsgate signed Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx on for a new take on Robin Hood.

Director Otto Bathurst promises an origin story unlike anything we have seen in Robin Hood.

“You don’t become a legend for 800 years if you’ve just stolen a few bags of money from rich people to give to the poor. In my mind, Robin Hood was this sort of seriously militarized anarchist revolutionary, a freedom thinker and a truth seeker. And the more I got into the story, it just became startling how utterly relevant it is to what’s going on in society now.”

Robin of Loxley (Taron Egerton) a war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander (Jamie Foxx) mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance.

Robin Hood comes to theaters November 21.
