Ian McShane Won’t Be In John Wick Spin-Off The Continental

The John Wick franchise has been quite impressive. Leading up to the release of the first film, I had a sinking feeling in my gut that this would be another Keanu Reeves dud. The trailer had dropped oddly close to film’s release date, and all signs seemed to point to it being a generic, run-of-the-mill action film. Boy, were we all wrong.

John Wick: Chapter 2 managed to also exceed expectations, and we’re all anxiously awaiting the third entry in the franchise. The first trailer recently hit for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, and I personally couldn’t be more excited to see Keanu Reeves hit the big screen once more. But that’s mot all this franchise will have to offer in the near future. In the near future, we’ll also be getting a spin-off series called The Continental.

This series will not follow John Wick himself, but it will likely have other ancillary elements from the films, including the titular hotel. But what about Ian McShane’s character? Speaking with Rotten Tomatoes, McShame himself was pretty blunt on the subject:

“No. But I may give ’em a voiceover. A series, no. They talked about that.”

Okay, so don’t expect a physical appearance, but he could ultimately contribute in some small way — but I wouldn’t get your hopes up on this one. Given that they won’t even be utilizing Reeves on a regular basis, they may do well to build mythology around their own characters rather than rely on characters from the films.
