JOHN WICK Prequel THE CONTINENTAL Finds Its Lead In FLIGHT ATTENDANT Breakout Colin Woodell & Casts Five More

Starz's upcoming John Wick prequel event series The Continental has found its lead in Colin Woodell (The Flight Attendant), who will play a young Winston Scott. They've also added five more to the cast.

Following that big casting news from earlier this week, Deadline is now reporting that Starz has found the lead star of The Continental in up-and-comer Colin Woodell (The Flight AttendantThe Originals), who will play a young Winston Scott in the upcoming three-part event series. 

Hubert Point-Du Jour (The Good Lord BirdDr. Death), Jessica Allain (The Laundromat; Archenemy), Mishel Prada (Vida; Riverdale), Nhung Kate (The HousemaidBitcoin Heist), and Ben Robson (Animal Kingdom; The Boy) have all also been cast in major roles. 

They all join 2x Academy Award-winner Mel Gibson (Lethal Weapon; Braveheart), who was previously cast as a mysterious character named Cormac.

As for their roles, Point-Du Jour will portray Miles, Allain will play Lou; Prada is KD, Nhung Kate portrays Yen and Robson is playing Frankie. 

The series will serve as a prequel to Lionsgate's acclaimed John Wick action film franchise starring Keanu Reeves in the title role. Here's the official synopsis:

"The Continental will explore the origin behind the hotel-for-assassins, which increasingly has become the centerpiece of the John Wick universe. This will be accomplished through the eyes and actions of a young Winston Scott, who is dragged into the Hell-scape of a 1975 New York City to face a past he thought he’d left behind. Winston charts a deadly course through the New York’s mysterious underworld in a harrowing attempt to seize the iconic hotel, which serves as the meeting point for the world’s most dangerous criminals."

The project remains a relative mystery, but when we recently caught up with John Wick creator Derek Kolstad, he teased big things for the show and major developments that will hopefully only enhance what fans already love about the acclaimed action franchise. 

John Wick: Chapter 4 is currently scheduled to open exclusively in theaters on May 27, 2022; where it's slated to open opposite Tom Cruise's long-awaited Top Gun: Maverick, which means one of the two - presumably the former - will end up shifting dates as we inch into 2022.
