The sequel was confirmed by Joe Drake, president of the Motion Picture Group. He also mentioned other projects in the popular action franchise, including a spin-off film and TV series in the franchise, Dancer AND The Continental, respectively. He also cited plans for a triple-A game in the series.
Now we’re moving forward with this franchise, not just in the AAA video game space, but looking at the regular cadence of spinoffs, television is really growing into that universe, so there’s a constant cadence of a franchise that has a clear appetite for an audience.
What’s official is that, as you know, Dancer is the first spin-off to be released next year. We are developing three more, including John Wick 5 and the television series, The Continentalwhich will appear shortly. And so, we’re building the world and when the fifth film comes, it’s going to be organic – it’s going to be built organically from how we’re starting to tell these stories. But you can count on a regular cadence of John Wick.
