Lionsgate Eyeing a Prequel TV Series for 'John Wick'

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell Because, why not? While there's already rumours of a third film despite the second one not even arriving on the big screen just yet, director Chad Stahelski has sat down to discuss the potential for the future of the series, including a possible TV series.

"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," said Stahelski.

"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." The director said that the story they're telling is a very specific one, with a beginning, middle and end, and doesn't want to deviate from that vision for the sake of a film devoted to backstory. It sounds like, for both him and Lionsgate, that television is a happy medium.

John Wick Chapter Two opens February 10.
