Confirmed: Chad Stahelski Returning to Direct ‘John Wick: Chapter 3’

We've got some updates for the Continental crowd. Lionsgate is all in on the sleeper hit turned tentpole franchise John Wick, with John Wick: Chapter 3 set for May 17, 2019 and a spinoff TV series in the works at Starz. Considering the studio's enthusiasm for the Keanu Reeves-led action franchise, it should come as no surprise that the wheels are already in motion on the sequel. Earlier today, some reports about John Wick: Chapter 3 popped up online via The Hashtag Show, who reported that director Chad Stahelski is set to return for Chapter 3. Our …

Men in Black Spin-Off Gets New Summer 2019 Release Date

Sony Pictures is still moving forward with its Men in Black spin-off, but now fans should expect it a month later than originally planned. Sony has pushed up the Mib spin-off from its original May 17, 2019 release date, to June 14, 2019. If it would have stayed put on May 17, the movie would have gone up against John Wick Chapter 3, but now that Lionsgate action sequel has the date all to itself, although that will surely change over the next year and a half. As of now, the movie will face Warner Bros. Shaft sequel.

There was no rationale given for the release date shift, especially since John Wick Chapter 3 had been set on that date a full two weeks before Sony decided to put Men in Black 4 on that date. It's entirely possible that the studio was really trying to get out of the way of Marvel's Avengers 4, which brings Marvel's

‘Men In Black’ Spinoff Gets Summer 2019 Release Date Change

Sony has moved its summer 2019 tentpole Men In Black Untitled from May 17 to June 14, taking it off the date currently occupied by John Wick: Chapter Three and moving it to the date where Warner Bros has its Shaft remake. This kind of date jockeying is not unusual a year in advance. Men In Black Untitled was initially fast-tracked by Columbia this year from a script by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum (Iron Man and Transformers: The Last Knight). The film is being produced by…

Ian McShane Vows To Bring His Own Twist To Hellboy’s Professor Broom

Whether it’s the omnipresent Mr. Wednesday on American Gods or Winston, owner of The Contential (John Wick HQ), Ian McShane typically brings with him a sense of gravitas and grandeur that few other actors can replicate.

It’s the reason why his Brother Ray resonated with Game of Thrones viewers, despite being killed off after only one episode – such is the brutal, unforgiving nature of Westeros.

But with Hellboy, he’ll be bringing his own twist to Professor Broom (Aka Trevor Bruttenholm), founder of Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense and the adoptive father of Hellboy himself. Originally portrayed by the late, great John Hurt across Guillermo del Toro’s films, Ian McShane spoke to Fandom about how his own particular rendition of Broom differs from what has come before.

You don’t start with the birth of Hellboy… but the relationship between [Hellboy and Broom] is quite crusty. Does he trust his father?

Superhero newcomer Jac Schaeffer has been typed to pen the script with collaboration from Scarlett Johansson, and it has been rumored that they'll be getting to work on the story as soon as next month.

Black Widow Gets The John Wick Treatment In Slick Fan Poster

Natalia Alianovna Romanoff is finally – finally – about to spearhead a Marvel standalone movie of her own.

Otherwise known as the famous (and deadly!) Black Widow, news of a Romanoff-centric spinoff first brought the Internet to a standstill late last week, when it was revealed that Marvel had enlisted Jac Schaeffer to hash out a script.

Details are still few and far between, but there are already signs of tangible progress, as Marvel Studios looks to capitalize on its biggest female star. And not a moment too soon.

Scarlett Johansson’s former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent arguably enjoyed her best material in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Joe and Anthony Russo’s sequel that was steeped in the rich history of ’60s espionage. Taking that into consideration, we’re inclined to believe that the (R-rated?) Black Widow offshoot will double down on the character’s murky history as an ex-Soviet spy.

John Wick: The Continental TV Show May Include Ian McShane

John Wick TV show spinoff The Continental may be bringing back a familiar face in Ian McShane. The original John Wick seemingly came out of nowhere back in 2014, and on the surface it looked like a silly action flick where Keanu Reeves avenges his murdered dog. The movie turned out to be one of the best action films of that year, with Reeves perfectly cast as the legendary hitman. The film also had a great supporting cast, and the amount of world-building surrounding the film’s criminal underworld added an intriguing layer to the story.

‘John Wick’ TV Series Confirmed

John Wick is one of those films that surprised audiences with just how good it was. Before the release, actor Keanu Reeves’ career had been on somewhat of a downward trajectory after a myriad of his films bombed at the box office. Then John Wick saved it, bringing Keanu back into the spotlight, and back into our hearts along with it. It wasn’t just Keanu that made the film however, it was the fictional world dreamt-up by writer Derek Kolstad; a world populated by secret assassins who trade in gold coins and have their own dedicated chain of hotels – The Continental. As the films have been so popular, and with the forthcoming John Wick: Chapter Three being the final film, Lionsgate and Starz are now working together to bring a television show based on the hotel to small screens worldwide.
