Dynamite Entertainment has put out a press release announcing that they have made a deal with Lionsgate to publish a comic book series inspired by John Wick.
Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci said the following about the project:
“John Wick was such an exciting film, mixing martial arts action with snappy dialogue and smart writing. As the credits rolled, you were left wanting more, and it was obvious that 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!”
Sheila Clarke, SVP Global Consumer Products Lionsgate Entertainment said the following about the project:
“A comic series is the perfect vehicle to engage in a different way with fans as well as expand the John Wick universe. We found a great partner in industry leader Dynamite Entertainment who shared our passion and enthusiasm for the franchise”.
