Mel Gibson to star in “The Continental”, the “John Wick” spin-off series


The franchise spin-off series John Wick found his first star. Mel Gibson was recruited to play one of the leading roles in the program, titled The Continental, planned for the Starz channel. According to Deadline, the actor will play a certain Cormac, a character which we do not yet know anything about. The mini-series, so mini that it should consist of only three episodes, broadcast three nights in a row, will focus on the hotel that we find in all the films of the saga with Keanu Reeves.

In John Wick and its two sequels, the Continental is billed as part of a network of establishments created so that criminals around the world can find themselves on neutral ground, close deals and be safe.

Discreet return

The Continental will take place in the 70s, when Winston Scott (the manager of the hotel, played by Ian McShane, in the films) seeks at all costs to take over the iconic establishment. The series will be written by Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward. Chad Stahelski, director of the three feature films, and Derek Kolstad, writer and creator of the franchise, will be executive producers, refusing to leave their babies in anyone’s hands.

This will be Mel Gibson’s first recurring role on television. The actor is very discreet since the anti-Semitic and racist statements that have made him more or less persona non grata in Hollywood. The superstar he was in the 90s and 2000s is now confined to supporting roles in independent or low-budget films.

John Wick will return to theaters in 2022 with a fourth film, scheduled for May 27.
