The action film franchise John Wick is coming to comic books in a new deal worked out between Lionsgate and Dynamite Entertainment. First reported by Entertainment Weekly, Dynamite's John Wick title will tell new stories of Keanu Reeves' semi-retired hitman spinning out of the 2014 film and the planned 2017 sequel.
“John Wick was such an exciting film, mixing martial arts action with snappy dialogue and smart writing,” said Dynamite CEO Nick Barrucci. “As the credits rolled, you were left wanting more, and it was obvious they had the makings of a franchise. We were quick to pursue the opportunity to develop a comic book series, and are thrilled to have been granted the rights to tell all-new stories with the character!”
No creative team or release date beyond it coming in 2017 has been announced by Dynamite, but it has released artwork commissioned from Giovanni Valletta illustrating Reeves' character.
