Mel Gibson Joins The ‘John Wick’ Universe: The Actor Will Be One Of The Protagonists Of The Prequel Series ‘The Continental’

MOVIE NEWS * This surely nobody expected: Mel Gibson is the first actor to be signed for ‘The Continental’, the prequel series to ‘John Wick’ that has been underway for some time and that will revolve around a young version of the character played by Ian McShane in the movies starring Keanu Reeves.


Gibson is not the one chosen to play a young Winston, as he will play a character named Cormac. Unfortunately, nothing is known about him beyond his name, but what is clear is that you are not going to sign an actor like him to give him a role of little relevance …

‘The Continental’ will explore the origins behind the hotel that serves as a haven for the murderers of this universe. To do this, he will follow a young Winston Scott, who is dragged into the streets of New York to face something he thought he had left behind.

It is unknown when we will see ‘The Continental’, but the Starz channel has already made it clear that it will be an event series whose three episodes will last for a movie. The signing of Gibson is a great blow on the table, even if the actor’s career is not exactly at its best. That does not mean that we could see him in the highly recommended ‘Boss Level’ very recently.

It seems clear that ‘John Wick 4’ will arrive first since its premiere is scheduled for May 27, 2022.
