John Wick TV Show Prequel Planned with Original Directors

""Well, we're not doing a prequel [with Chapter 2]. We wanted to, it just didn't fit quite where we're at....We basically almost have a prequel written, but we'd save that for other aspects of the property. Lionsgate is very interested in doing a John Wick TV show, and that seems very appealing to us, to give those creative ideas to that entity, because I think in TV you could really expand on what that is, and greater than we could in just a two-hour film. We'd like to wrap-up the story we're telling now and maybe save all our prequel ideas and impossible task ideas for that medium."

I think a prequel about the hotel, and not necessarily John Wick, would be great.

I need to watch the first movie tonight as I have never seen it and we're supposed to see John Wick 2 tomorrow.

Did it say the channel? I didn't see that mentioned. That will make or break this.

It didn't but there was a Game of Thrones comparison. I would think it would have to be on a premium channel like HBO or Starz. If not, it won't even be worth watching.

Totally agree. I could see FX pulling it off, maybe AMC.

Just one appearance or multiple? This is exciting. Starz makes sense to me.
