I samband med premiären av den fjärde John Wick-filmen tidigare i år talades det en hel del om hur Lionsgate ville expandera universumet och utforska nya media. TV-serien The Continental som nyligen gick upp på Amazon Prime är ett exempel på studions expansiva planer och nu har även Wicks huvudsakliga regissör, Chad Stahleski, att en anime och TV-serie baserad på filmerna också är under produktion. I en diskussion med The Discourse hade kreatören följande att säga:

HQ

"We're really looking forward to that. We're really excited about it because we're doing... a Japanese anime because I love Japanese anime so much. So to create all the cool stories that anime can achieve better than we can, and the TV show to expand our world. We'll still get our fix, you know what I mean? And we'll still have all the fun."

"I think for TV especially, world-building and action - those two have stayed pretty separate. But if you to try and combine them and give fans both? Look, I love the slow-burn too, but after six episodes, I would like something to happen in my TV shows, you know? So to try and bring that to TV what we do with features would be really exciting."

Tidigare har även Stahleski nämnt i lösa ordalag hur Wick-universumet bjuder på många olika möjligheter, samt hur han gärna utforskat flera av filmernas karaktärer lite djupare. Däribland Bowery King och Sofia AL-Azwar.

"I love the world of the homeless, I love The Bowery King's world, if there's ways to tie that together to its own thing, I don't know what that is yet. I like the worlds we haven't explored yet, like I love China. I love Hong Kong. I love the idea of tongs and triads, and all the history of Kung Fu and all this, there's a world there to be explored."

"We're currently developing the John Wick TV show now, I think these worlds are going to be explored there. I love Rina Sawayama's character, I like the hint of that, I would love to see the prequel to Halle Berry's character in the third one. I love, love, love Jimmy the cop, I love Charlie, David Patrick Kelly's character, the cleaner. I love John Leguizamo's Aurelio in the first one."

"There's these cool little worlds that haven't been poked or prodded enough, I think. Now to do their own thing, I don't know, but I'd like to bring them back in other storylines, and I think that's why we're so interested and so game to do a TV show, is to bring all these people in and about the world."

Ser du fram emot dessa nya projekt, eller har vi sett tillräckligt av John Wick-universumet?
